Municipal Courts and DUII in Astoria

By

For some reason the subject of municipal courts, their jurisdiction, appeals from, and their judges keeps popping up these past couple of weeks. I was scanning the newspapers from around the state and this story from the April 27th Daily Astorian jumped out: “Astoria DUII falls under the radar: City prosecutor won’t appeal May 11 drunken driving dismissal”

Get arrested for driving under the influence of intoxicants in Warrenton, and you’ll likely face the charge in Clatsop County Circuit Court, a “court of record” held to state standards of judicial conduct.But get caught across Youngs Bay Bridge in Astoria, and the outcome in the city’s municipal court is more debatable.”

Interesting story.
