About the area
As you can imagine with the volume, Philadelphia has a substantial amount of crime. Statistics show the volume of serious crimes is down about 20% in the last several years, but there's still a lot of problems. The city has had publicity for experimentation with the school system and arranging for free wireless internet access.
With 25 judges, there's a lot going on here. Hon. Ronald B. Merriweather supervises the Criminal Division. Your case may also be handled by a Criminal Trial Commissioner.
The big wheel in the DA's office is Lynne Abraham. Main office phone is 215-686-8000; Fax at 563-0047. Assistant District Attorneys for Philadelphia Municipal Court conduct preliminary hearings and misdemeanor trials at a high volume, with close to 100 trials a day on average - and we're counting the weekends even though they probably don't do trials then.
Type Of Cases Mostly misdemeanors along with initial handling of the more serious crimes. They also have a "Nuisance Night Court." Sounds delightful.
