Roxbury Township Municipal Court is responsible for motor vehicle and traffic violations, quasi-criminal offenses (i.e. disorderly and petty disorderly person offenses), municipal ordinance violations, certain penalty enforcement actions (i.e., Weights & Measures; SPCA), including fish and game violations, within its jurisdiction.
Charges of a more serious offense (Indictable) are sent to the Morris County Prosecutor's Office in Morristown Superior Court. These cases are either brought before a Grand Jury in Superior Court or downgraded and remanded back to Roxbury Municipal Court to be heard.
Roxbury Township Municipal Court is in session on Thursdays at 9:30 am and 1:30 pm. The public is invited to attend
The court date on the summons is not a trial date, but the date by which the complaint must be answered, either by payment or a personal appearance in court.
Failing to appear or answer your complaint or summons will result in further action by the court. On Mandatory Court appearances a warrant would issue and a bail amount assessed. On payable violations a Failure to Appear Notice will be sent to the defendant with an additional $10.00 penalty assessed to the amount due. If you do not respond to the Failure to Appear notice a warrant will be issued and a bail amount assessed and your driving privileges will be suspended in the State of New Jersey and 44 other states.
Posting of bail on a complaint or summons does not mean the complaint is satisfied. The bail is to assure your appearance in court. On some matters you may be able to sign a bail waiver. Please contact the court if you have any questions. Failing to appear in court after posting bail will result in the bail being forfeited and a new warrant issuing.
The Court will provide an interpreter if one is needed.
