If criminal charges are authorized, you will be contacted to sign the complaint. Once the suspect has been served with the complaint, he/she will be  ordered to appear in Brunswick Mayor’s Court.  If the suspect pleads guilty or no contest, he/she will be fined and sentenced at Court and the case is finished. Should the defendant plead not guilty, the case is transferred to Medina Municipal Court and will require your appearance and testimony at the trial.
