Glen Mills District Court 32-2-49

The court system in Pennsylvania has different types of courts that handle particular kinds of offenses. The district courts, which are sometimes also called magisterial courts, deal with traffic violations, summary criminal offenses, municipal code violations, landlord tenant disputes, and small civil claims under the value of $12,000.

You are probably familiar with the most common kinds of traffic offenses: speeding, failure to yield, ignoring stop signs or red lights, and driving while intoxicated. You may also be familiar with the offenses that are referred to as summary criminal offenses, which include shoplifting, harassment, disorderly conduct, underage drinking, loitering, and criminal mischief.

If you have gotten a traffic ticket or have been arrested in Delaware County for any of these kinds of offenses, it is in your best interest to contact an attorney to assist you with your case. Our attorneys have years of experience helping individuals like you with their district court cases, so as soon as you receive your notice or summons to appear for your district court date, call our offices.

 

Glen Mills District Court

District Court 32-2-49 is located in Glen Mills, in Delaware County. This particular district court covers Bethel, Chadds Ford, Concord, and Thornbury. It is presided over by the Honorable Judge Wendy B. Roberts, Esquire. The court’s phone number is 610-558-3605, and the fax number is 610-558-3618. You will report to your court date at the location at 485 Baltimore Pike in Glen Mills.

On your court date, you will be required to appear for an arraignment, a preliminary criminal hearing, a non-jury trial, or a traffic hearing, depending on what you have been charged with and on what point you are at in your case. It is during these proceedings that Judge Roberts will decide whether you will be convicted of the charges against you, and if so, what penalty or sentence you will face.

Unfortunately, although the kinds of offenses handled in district court seem fairly minor, the same cannot be said for the penalties that accompany a conviction. If this is your first conviction in district court, you could be sentenced to ninety days in prison. But if this is not your first conviction, you could be facing up to 180 days in prison. And on top of the possible jail sentence, you may also be required to pay a fine that can be as high as $300, which may be more than you and your family can spare, especially for such a minor offense.
