The court is located at 6 Patriot Hills Road in Stony Point, New York. It is a few blocks away the Palisades Interstate Parkway and located in an office park. The building façade is stone laid. There is ample parking surrounding the building.
Is there anything I should do before going to court?
In brief, if you have been issued a ticket, you must enter a plea of not guilty within 48 hours of receipt. You should do so by some by some form of return-receipt mailing.
The court will send you a court date. Your failure to respond in a timely manner will result in your license being suspended. If your privilege to drive is suspended and you are caught driving, you could be arrested and placed in jail. Further, you may be convicted of a misdemeanor and be subject to a permanent criminal record.
What can I expect when I go inside the Court?
On the court date, you must “check in” with the court officers located immediately as you walk through the entrance of the building.
The officers will walk you through a metal detector and advise you to turn off all electronic devices. Further, the officers will advise you that there is no food or drinks allowed in the courtroom.
Sometimes, the officers will mark your attendance. Other times, they will direct you to the courtroom where either the court clerk will mark you attendance or you will sign-in at the attendance sheet at the front of the courtroom.
After you check in, you will be instructed to have a seat in the courtroom and wait. The court can accommodate approximately 70 individuals.
Eventually, your name will be called and you will line up to meet with the prosecutor.
The court moves quickly and efficiently. However, there may be significant delays. You should be patient and be prepared to spend up to half a day in court.
