County Court is located in each county of the State outside of New York City. County Court is authorized to handle the prosecution of all crimes committed within the county. It has exclusive authority to handle trials in felony matters and shares authority with the local city, and town and village courts to handle trials in misdemeanor cases (offenses punishable by less than one year in prison) and other minor offenses and violations. The County Court also has limited authority to hear civil cases. County Court also acts as an appellate court for civil and criminal appeals from the town and village courts and for criminal, civil, and small claims from city court.
