The Pleasantville Mayor's Court can hear and decide cases on violations of village ordinances and traffic laws that are classified as misdemeanors pursuant to Ohio Revised Code Chapter 1905. Mayor Jason
Henderson presides over the Mayor's Court for most arraignments and the village hires an attorney to serve as Magistrate to hear Pre-Trials or Trials.

Mayor's Court holds monthly sessions on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month at 4:00pm at 106 E.
Columbus Street, the Village Council Chambers.


If you have a mandatory court appearance and you cannot appear at the required date and time, you must request a continuance which may or may not be approved. In order for a request to be considered it must come with sufficient notice and good cause shown. You may contact the Clerk of Courts by any means listed to the side. You cannot send anyone in your place to a mandatory court appearance, which includes parents.

Arrive 10-15 minutes before your scheduled date and time. Court will start promptly at the scheduled start time. This will allow you to review your rights from, ask questions, or request to speak with the prosecutor (on trial dates).

Do not bring weapons (including pocketknives) into the court room. Remove your hat when in the building and silence any cell phones or electronic devices. If choosing to pay a fine by check, ensure the account has sufficient funds for the issued amount, as passing a bad check on a court is a felony.

On arraignments you simply appear in court, and enter one of three pleas: Guilty, Not Guilty, or No Contest.

By pleading Guilty or No Contest you waive your right to a trial, and the is usually disposed of the same evening. If you plea Not Guilty your case will be scheduled for a trial at a later date.
