The Queensbury Town Court plays a vital role in the protection of our safety and our rights as residents of the Town of Queensbury. Every town, city and village has a Court which handles civil and criminal matters.
Any criminal act which occurs in this town is initially under the jurisdiction of our Town Court. After the arrest occurs, the individual is brought to court for an arraignment. The arraignment is the time when a plea of guilty or not guilty is entered to the charge, and if necessary, bail is set. Bail is an amount of money which an arrestee has to pay if he wishes to be released from jail, pending disposition of the criminal matter.
