About Greer Municipal Court
Greer Municipal Court is part of the statewide unified court system. Chief Municipal Judge Henry J. Mims is appointed by Greer City Council and Municipal Court Administrator Kirsten Pressley oversees the daily operation of the court and its staff.
The Municipal Court is responsible for warrants, arraignments, and the adjudication of cases. In addition to hearing cases, The Chief Municipal Judge serves in a supervisory capacity over assistant judges and ministerial recorders.
The Municipal Court is one of limited jurisdiction, hearing only misdemeanor criminal cases, as well as traffic cases carrying a maximum fine and sentence of $500 or 30 days in jail, plus certain other cases as authorized by the South Carolina Legislature. The court has no civil jurisdiction; no lawsuits or non-criminal matters are heard. Appeals for decisions received from the court are accepted in circuit court.
Serving Our Citizens
The goal of the court is to provide a fair hearing for everyone. The opening of the City of Greer Police and Courts Complex in 2008 provided the community with a spacious and comfortable courtroom with state-of-the-art technology and improved access to the court. Friendly and helpful clerks and ministerial recorders are ready to help the public.
