Judicial System and the Law

If you're charged with a crime in the State of Tennessee, your case will most likely begin in the General Sessions Court. There are limited circumstances under which a case will begin at the grand jury level, but the first court appearance in most criminal cases is in General Sessions Court. Everything from driving on a revoked license to criminal homicide is heard by the General Sessions Judge.

If you've committed a crime in Perry County, you will become a resident and guest of Perry County, no matter where you were arrested. Our Sheriff's office has done an outstanding job, serving the community, not only by providing jail services, but community activity that includes everything from chopping wood to providing a vocational training program to help inmates from returning to the system again.
