Municipal Prosecuting Attorney’s Office
The Municipal Prosecutor is responsible for prosecuting all City ordinance violations.
Virtual Attorney Call
Prior to each regular Tuesday Municipal Court Docket (this does not include the trial docket), the Municipal Prosecutor will hold a virtual attorney call between 4:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. via ZOOM.
The ZOOM meeting ID for this virtual attorney call is 521 458 8741 (no passcode).
The virtual attorney call will not be held on Tuesdays when there is no regular Municipal Court docket scheduled.
Requests for Recommendation
Requests for recommendations and discovery should be made directly to the Municipal Prosecutor’s Office. Submission of requests to the Municipal Court do not suffice for service of such documents on the Prosecuting Attorney.
Please submit a self-addressed stamped envelope for any request for recommendation or a copy of a police report. If requesting a video, an attorney must submit a blank, unmarked DVD and a self-addressed, stamped mailing envelope that is appropriate for mailing DVDs.
Counsel will receive a written recommendation and any accompanying documents by mail. Counsel may submit via regular mail, fax or email, a request for a revised recommendation along with pertinent information that should be considered such as proof of reinstatement or proof of insurance. If your client’s case involves a motor vehicle accident, a copy of the defendant’s insurance card is not sufficient. Counsel must provide proof of restitution or a letter from the defendant’s insurer verifying acceptance of liability and settlement of claims with the other drivers or owners of property.
A copy of any motion or pleading filed by defense counsel should be sent to the Municipal Prosecutor’s Office and may be served by regular mail, fax or email.
Contacting the Prosecutor:
Any attorney wishing to communicate with the prosecutor about any Municipal Court matter may do so by mail, email or by leaving a message by phone (314-513-5216). Please make sure to include the Client’s name and charges and any relevant documents (such as proof of insurance or proof of reinstatement).
Any attorney wishing to speak directly to the prosecutor about any Municipal Court matter may send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and, in addition to the information listed above, include a phone number where the attorney may be reached. The Prosecutor will respond by phone.
It is defense counsel’s responsibility to ensure that the Entry of Appearance, any request for continuance, motions, requests pertaining to warrants, and similar pleadings are filed directly to the Municipal Court.
