Presiding Judge McCullough

Judge Amy.pngThe City of Tyler Municipal Court is a criminal court of record established by the city charter. Because Tyler is the county seat and a metropolitan hub for the entire region, approximately 45,000 cases are filed in this court annually.  Its jurisdiction applies to all areas within the city limits, nuisances occurring within 5,000 feet of the city limits, and city-owned properties in its Extraterritorial Jurisdiction.

This court adjudicates all Class “C” misdemeanors including traffic offenses and city code violations. These offenses are non-jailable unless the judgment is not satisfied. The City of Tyler Municipal Court also hears criminal juvenile matters, serves as the truancy court for Tyler Independent School District, and holds driver license hearings for the Texas Department of Public Safety.

Our goal is to help you resolve your court matters as expediently as possible. Court personnel are available 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. Please contact the City of Tyler Municipal Court if you have any questions or need assistance. We are here to serve you.

Our Mission

To provide a forum for justice to ensure that all citizens served by the Municipal Court are treated fairly and equally, without regard to race, sex, and religion, while abiding by all applicable guidelines and laws.
