Everyone charged with a criminal violation has a right to a jury trial. In the Austin Municipal Court, all cases are criminal except parking and red light camera. The exceptions, however, are disabled parking violations. These are also criminal violations.
Municipal Court contracts with Travis County to notify jurors for upcoming jury assignments. Jury trials consist of 6 citizens and usually last 2 to 4 hours, but can last longer. Parking is available for jurors at 707 E. 7th St. across from the courthouse next to the Texaco, on the Southwest side of the street. Jurors, who cannot attend, due to an illness or emergency, should call the number on your notice so that you can be rescheduled on another date.
