SUMMERVILLE, S.C. (Thursday, January 7, 2021) – All in-person hearings through the Town of Summerville Municipal Court are suspended effective Monday, January 11, 2021, until further notice. The order was made by South Carolina Supreme Court Chief Justice Donald W. Beatty out of an abundance of caution in helping to reduce risk of exposure to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Bond hearings and emergency hearings will continue. Traffic and criminal cases will be rescheduled once the order is lifted.
The Town of Summerville Municipal Court has created a general email for any proof of listed citations to be submitted for consideration during the time court is closed to the public. The public may submit proof to firstname.lastname@example.org as advised by a Summerville police officer. The received information will be forwarded to the charging officer. Once Municipal Court receives approval from the officer, a return email will be sent to advise those with citations of what further steps need to be taken.
Please include the following in your email to the court along with your proof of compliance:
- Citation number (also include a photo or scanned copy of your citation if possible)
- Legal name (as appears on your driver’s license)
- Return email address (if it is different than the email address used to provide the information)
Those who need assistance can contact Summerville Municipal Court at (843) 875-2010 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
The Town advises the public to take health precautions issued by the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
