Misdemeanor Unit

Mallot on Books

The Misdemeanor Unit is responsible for prosecuting misdemeanor offenses committed by adults in Navajo County and those juvenile offenses that the Justice Courts have authority to hear. A misdemeanor is a crime for which a defendant may be sentenced to a term of incarceration in the County jail for six months or less. This includes criminal traffic violations, driving under the influence (DUI), underage drinking, disorderly conduct, code violations and dozens of other crimes.

Misdemeanors differ from felonies in that local law enforcement officers can directly file with the Justice Court citations for misdemeanor charges.
