In Georgia, most traffic-related cases are heard in either Probate Court or in Municipal Court (for cases that originated within a city).
In large counties like Gwinnett County, there is a county-wide traffic court called Recorders Court.
The Gwinnett County Recorder’s Court has original jurisdiction over all traffic citations, DUI cases, and county ordinance violations.
There are three judges in the Gwinnett County Recorder's Court, Chief Judge Michael Green, Judge Rodney Harris, and Judge Patricia Muse. Each serves a four-year term and is appointed by the Chief Superior Court and Chief State Court Judges.
When a person elects to have a jury trial, their case is transferred (bound-over) to the State Court of Gwinnett County. However, ordinance violations must be heard in Recorder's Court.
The Gwinnett County Solicitor General serves as the prosecutor in both Recorder's Court and State Court. If accused of a crime, hire a Gwinnett County DUI Lawyer to handle your case.
