The Division is headed by Managing Assistant Prosecutor Richmond Riggs and is further comprised of four assistant prosecutors and three administrative support staff.
The Circuit Court is the highest trial court in Michigan.
All felony trials are held in this court. A felony is a crime punishable by one year or more in a state prison or county jail. Felony charges are first handled in District Court then, if bound over, charges are handled in Circuit Court. Criminal Circuit Court proceedings begin with an arraignment which is a hearing at which the defendant is informed of the charges against him/her and bail is set by the Judge. At the arraignment, the Judge will also schedule a pre-trial conference and the trial. The pre-trial conference is a meeting between the prosecutor, the defense attorney and the Judge to determine if the case can be resolved without a trial.
