Court Tip – where to go: Stony Point Justice Court is located at 6 Patriot Hills Driving in Stony Point New York.  Upon entering the courthouse, you will be asked to walk through a metal detector.  It is important to leave inappropriate metal objects at home.  After you are granted entry into the building, you will walk down a small hallway and enter the courtroom to your right.  For the most part, you will be instructed to be seated and wait for a pre-trial conference.  If you see the officer that issued the ticket, you will have the opportunity to meet and discuss your matter with the officer.  If your ticket was issued by the State Police, you will have an opportunity to meet with the prosecutor who is usually positioned on the left hand side of the courtroom next to the podium.

Things to bring: you should bring your court notice advising you to appear in court.  If you are displaced, showing the court personnel your letter may help in directing you where to go and what to do. 

If your case is resolved at the pre-trial conference, the court will ask that you pay any fines with the Court Clerk.  It is important that you bring enough money to cover any court fees or fines.

Dress Code: while there is no official dress code, it is important that you dress neatly and always conduct yourself in a respectful manner with the court.  Many judges frown upon litigants wearing shorts, open toe sandals, and other similar items.

Sign-in: even though you may have met with the officer in court and discussed your matter, it is important to check-in with the court clerk in the front of the courtroom.  Failure to advise the clerk that you are in court may result in your case not being called.

About the Court:  Stony Point Justice Court is a local court with limited jurisdiction. It has the power to adjudicate misdemeanor crimes, landlord tenant cases, and matters otherwise considered to be small claims cases.

Stony Point has retained an attorney to prosecute traffic matters issued by the State Police.  Tickets issued by the Stony Point Police Department are prosecuted by the officers that issued the summons.  Tickets issued by the Park Police are prosecuted by the New York State Park Police Officer that issued the summons. 

A large number of park summons are issued along Lake Welch Drive.  These summons include but are not limited to the failure to properly secure a child a seatbelt under VTL 1229(c), disorderly conduct, and unlawful possession of marijuana.
