Grandview Heights Mayor’s Court
Mayor Ray DeGraw serves as the decision-making authority for the Grandview Heights Mayor’s Court, located at 1016 Grandview Avenue, Grandview Heights, OH 43212. Occasionally, a magistrate will preside over this Court in the Mayor’s place. Typically, the City Prosecutor brings charges on behalf of the City and will begin by making recommendations for fines, penalties or sentencing. If a case is not disposed of during an arraignment, the Prosecutor will proceed by bringing the case to trial on behalf of the City.
In the case of an OVI/DUI or other types of misdemeanor offenses the fines, penalties, or sentencing can be of a serious nature. The penalties for an OVI/DUI range from $350 to $10,000, license suspension, increased insurance premiums, vehicle forfeiture and/or jail time, so it is important to have experienced legal representation.
