Bexley Mayor's Court
The Bexley Mayor's Court serves as the judicial branch of the City of Bexley.
The Mayor's staff, Clerk of Court, also functions as the Violations Bureau, collecting payments for violations that do not require a court appearance. The Clerk's office keeps abreast of changes in pertinent laws and regulations, and strives to enhance day-to-day operations with all persons associated with the court.
At Mayor's Court, the Magistrate presides over sentencing of arraignments, pre-trials, probation revocation hearings, and financial hearings.
Mayor's Court convenes at Bexley City Hall in Council Chambers at 1:00 pm on alternating Thursdays of every month. Specific dates are listed below.

The first Mayor's Court in 2023 will be Thursday, January 5.
Beginning June 13, 2019, counsel will be appointed for defendants, free of charge, determined to be indigent and charged with a criminal offense that carries the potential of jail time as a penalty (M4-M1 cases).
You must file an application, called a Financial Disclosure Form. This form will only be used for purposes of determining indigent status and is not relevant to your case. Counsel and/or the City of Bexley has discretion in determining who qualifies.
Note: This is a standard form for all of Ohio's public defender offices. We do not charge a $25 application fee. Complete Sections I, II, III, and IV if section III isn't applicable.
Q. What if I transfer my case to Franklin County Municipal Court to be heard?

Q. How do I obtain a Public Defender if my case is transferred?
A. You will need to follow the procedures outlined by the Franklin County Public Defender’s office, i.e. completing a new application and paying an application fee. Qualification or non-qualification in Bexley Mayor’s Court is not determinative or binding on whether you will be appointed counsel in Municipal Court.
