Dover Justice Court has jurisdiction over crimes (misdemeanors and violations), traffic violations, small claims matters and landlord/tenant matters. On felony charges, the court conducts arraignment and preliminary matters. If the charges are not reduced to misdemeanors, the Town Court transfers them to Dutchess County Court for final disposition. Criminal matters are prosecuted by the Dutchess County District Attorney’s Office. Traffic matters, Town Ordinances and Violations are prosecuted by the special prosecutor. The local police prosecute their own tickets.
The court schedule is as follows:
Justice R. Wren Abrams sits every Thursday at 6 p.m.
DA Court (criminal cases only)-2nd Monday of each month at 6 p.m.
Justice John Fusco sits every Tuesday at 7 p.m.
DA Court (criminal cases only)-3rd Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m.
New York DMV doesn’t care how many miles a year you drive. The Sunday driver gets the same point allotment that a taxi driver receives. The Driver Responsibility Assessment is another surcharge on individuals who operate vehicles in N.Y. Now, if you are unlucky enough to have been found guilty of at least six points, all issued within the same 18 months, there is a DMV surcharge of $300.00 payable at once or at the rate of $100.00 annually. Failure to pay will result in a suspension of your license to operate in New York State. This applies to out of state motorists as well. To add insult to injury, there is an additional charge of $25.00 per year for each of three years for each point exceeding six. For example, if one were to accumulate ten points, the annual surcharge would be $200 or $600 over the three years. Taking the Driver Safety Course does not result in a reduction of the surcharge.
