Town DUI Prosecution Heading For Municiple Court

October 8, 2013 Jackson Hole, State of Wyoming, Town of Jackson No Comments

Jackson Town Council last night passed on final reading the ordinances necessary to allow municipal court to begin trying drunk driving cases that originate in town.  Mayor Mark Barron says by trying the cases in municipal court, it would bring associated revenues into town to be used by the police department in their efforts to prosecute DUI cases.  Currently, all DUI cases from town are referred to 9th District Court.  Barron admits that in addition to generating additional revenues for the town, the move would relieve some of the pressure on the one court to deal with the volume of DUI cases it has to process.  Additional steps need to be taken to clear the way for town cases to be referred to municipal court, but the passage of the ordinances begin that process.
