The Circuit Court has jurisdiction over all defendants accused of committing crimes that have been designated by the State Legislature as felonies. A felony is a criminal offense punishable by death or imprisonment in a state penitentiary, for a term that exceeds one (1) year. The Circuit Court also has jurisdiction over all cases in which a minor is alleged to have committed a delinquent act or violation of law.

The County Court has jurisdiction over all defendants accused of committing crimes which have been designated as misdemeanors. A misdemeanor is a criminal offense which is punishable by imprisonment in a county correctional facility not in excess of one (1) year.

The County Court also has jurisdiction over criminal traffic cases. Criminal Traffic laws are defined as a violation that may subject a defendant to incarceration upon conviction.
