1. Most DUI cases pending in Gwinnett County begin in either the Gwinnett County Recorders Court or a municipal court, such as the Norcross Municipal Court, Duluth Municipal Court, Lilburn Municipal Court, Braselton Municipal Court, Snellville Municipal Court, or Lawrenceville Municipal Court.
2. If your DUI case is pending in Gwinnett County and it is in a court other than Gwinnett County State Court or Gwinnett County Superior Court, it is pending in a court that does not have the ability to offer you are jury trial upon your DUI.
3. You have the right to have your case “bound over” from any of these courts to the State Court of Gwinnett County. In the State Court, you may obtain a jury trial.
4. In the Gwinnett County Recorders Court or any of the local municipal courts within Gwinnett County, you may ask for a hearing upon motions or a bench trial.
