Delaware County 32-2-43 Magisterial District Court

If you live in Radnor Township’s voting district 1, 2-1, 3 or 6 or anywhere in Newtown Township, you may have encountered the Magisterial District Court 32-2-43 in Newtown Square for a hearing. If you’ve been accused of a crime in these locations, your court case will start at this venue. Only summary offenses such as traffic violations and low-level misdemeanor cases are heard through completion in this court. For other misdemeanor and felony cases, you’ll eventually progress to the Delaware County Court of Common Pleas for your full evidentiary hearing, if necessary. For these matters, preliminary arraignments and hearings will be held in this venue, and the magisterial district judge will set bail and progress the case, if appropriate. Other matters that are heard in the Magisterial District Court 32-2-43 include the following:

  • Civil disputes with damages sought of less than $12,000
  • Traffic citations

Delaware County Magisterial District Court 32-2-43 Summary Offense Hearings

A summary offense is citation-based and is the lowest level type of misdemeanor case in Delaware County. You’ll want to note that jail time and fines plus any additional compensation ordered by the magisterial district judge are very possible with some offenses. While you can handle some matters on your own with ease such as a traffic violation, a misdemeanor case, and any other non-summary offense criminal matter are best handled by a skilled criminal defense attorney such as those with Amato Sanita Law Offices. First-time offender cases are punishable by up to 90 days in jail and fines, plus any restitution ordered by the Magisterial District Judge Leon Hunter, III. Common summary offense matters heard by the Delaware County Magisterial District Court 32-2-43 include the following criminal cases:

  • Low-level retail theft
  • Loitering
  • Harassment
  • Disorderly conduct offenses and more

More on the Role of the Magisterial District Court for Delaware County in Newtown Square

The magisterial district judge for each court oversees the cases in their district. They’re typically from legal backgrounds and are practicing attorneys. However, there is an alternative route for those not from legal backgrounds. The commonwealth offers a rigorous program for training these elected officials. They serve a six-year term and are paid a salary for their position. Formerly known as justices of the peace, they’re able to perform marriage ceremonies at their discretion and administer oaths.
