About Stow Municipal Court

The Stow Municipal Court has jurisdiction over misdemeanor and traffic offenses committed within its geographical boundaries and civil cases in which the amount in controversy does not exceed $15,000. The Court handles about 20,000 cases per year.

Probation & Programs

The Court’s community control programs are considered to be among Ohio’s most innovative. If you are found guilty of a traffic or criminal misdemeanor, and part of your sentence includes probation, you will be assigned to one of the Court’s Community Control Officers.

These programs ensure that defendants are adhering to their court orders (AA, anger management counseling, parenting classes, etc.) and in some cases can allow defendants to avoid jail time.
