The New Rochelle City Court is located in Westchester County at 475 North Avenue, New Rochelle, New York. New Rochelle is the second largest city in Westchester County. It is a City Court and handles, among other things, traffic infractions, misdemeanors, landlord/tenant and small claims cases. It has a fairly busy traffic violation calendar as both Interstate 95 and the Hutchinson River Parkway pass through New Rochelle. Therefore, this Court presides over many speeding ticket and traffic violation cases. It also handles misdemeanors including those related to driving such as DWI, Reckless Driving and Aggravated Unlicensed Operator.
The Court is located only several blocks from Iona College and therefore, as can be expected, it hears many cases related to underage drinking, unlawful dealing with a minor, endangering the welfare of a child, possession of alcohol by a minor, drug possession including marijuana possession and assault.
While the New Rochelle City Court does not have the jurisdiction to hear felony cases post-indictment, it will be the first court you are brought before if you are arrested for a felony in New Rochelle. It is this court that will most likely handle your arraignment for a felony committed within the City of New Rochelle and set bail, release you on your on recognizance or remand you without bail. However, if you ultimately are indicted on the felony, your case will be transferred to the Westchester County Court. If the original felony charge is reduced to a misdemeanor, the case will stay in New Rochelle.
