What Court Am I Charged In?


The court you are charged in depends on a few things.  If the charge is a felony, it will be in superior court of the county where the crime was supposedly committed. 

In Kitsap county the charge will start in district court first.  If the charge is a misdemeanor or a gross misdemeanor, the court depends on the law enforcement agency that arrested you or stopped you.  If it was the County Sheriff or a State Trooper, then the charge will be filed in district court. 

If it was a city cop, it will be filed in the municipal court of that city.
