7TH CIRCUIT COURT - GENESEE COUNTY

The 7th Circuit Court is a trial court with general jurisdiction, and it is composed of nine elected judges. The court handles all felony matters involved within Genesee County and any attached misdemeanors and other various criminal and civil matters.  Through the powers of the Chief Judge, the 7th Circuit Court has oversight of the Friend of the Court, the Public Defender Program, Court Services Division, Financial Services Division, Jury Commission and the County Law Library.

Remember, the 7th Circuit Court will not handle or oversee a criminal felony until one of the two District Courts finds probable cause and binds or moves the matter over to the 7th Circuit Court. Felonies are distinguished from misdemeanors because felonies have a maximum punishment that exceeds 1-year in jail. Therefore, it becomes necessary and imperative to have a criminal defense attorney anytime you have a matter pending before the 7th Circuit Court. In fact, in almost every situation a criminal defense lawyer will be appointed too you if you are unable to afford one while your case is pending at the 7th Circuit Court.
