Traffic/Criminal

Miamisburg Municipal Court's Traffic/Criminal Division processes all misdemeanor traffic citations and misdemeanor criminal complaints issued in the court's jurisdiction. Traffic and criminal charges that are classified as minor misdemeanors or misdemeanor 1, 2, 3 or 4 remain in the Miamisburg Municipal Court through sentencing. The court also receives felony filings and holds preliminary hearings on felony charges to determine probable cause before transferring the case to the Montgomery County Common Pleas Court. Below is a chart explaining the confinement and fines for misdemeanors.

Classification Confinement Individual Fine
M1 Up to 6 Months Up to $1,000.00
M2 Up to 90 Days Up to $750.00
M3 Up to 60 Days Up to $500.00
M4 Up to 30 Days Up to $250.00
MM None Up to $150.00

Personnel in the traffic/criminal division input all citations and complaints into the court's database, schedule the necessary court appearances, record all sentencing and fine information, and oversee the fine payment process.

Many traffic citations may be paid by mail, phone, or online in lieu of appearing in court. See below for the Fines & Costs Schedule for payable violations if the officer has not indicated on your citation that an appearance is required.
