State Court Misdemeanor Schedule
Misdemeanor Traffic Schedule effective during Judicial emergency****REVISED****
Order Terminating Emergency Misdemeanor Traffic and Game/Fish Offense Schedule
In an effort to reduce the number of people coming to the Justice Center, Chief State Court Judge Alan Jordan has reduced traffic offenses by 15% during the duration of the state of emergency. The 15% reduction ONLY applies if the traffic fine is paid PRIOR to the court date on your citation. We have options for paying prior to your court date, that does NOT involve coming to the Justice center. YOu can mail your payments with a money order to: State Court, 90 North Street, Canton, GA 30114 or you can pay online by visiting Cherokee County Online Traffic Payments Or you can call 678.493.6550.
Below is a copy of the Traffic Fine Schedule, some offenses that previously were "MUST SEE JUDGE" are now payable at a reduced rate.
