Willingboro Municipal Court
The Willingboro Municipal Court is located at 1 Martin Luther King Drive, Willingboro, NJ 08046. Although the court staff may be reached during regular business hours at 609-877-2200, weekly hearing sessions are only conducted on Thursday at 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. All issues associated with your charge will be decide by Honorable Harold George as there is no right to a jury trial in Willingboro Municipal Court. It is only indictable criminal offenses that give rise to such a right and those matters can only be dealt with at the Burlington County Superior Court. If you were arrested and charged with a first degree, second degree, third degree of fourth degree crime, your case will be referred to Mt. Holly for handling. It is important that you advise the court immediately if you are unable to appear at a scheduled hearing as a warrant for your arrest shall be issued if you fail to appear without an approved adjournment of your matter. You may contact the Court Administrator, Carolyn Campbell or one of her deputies, Deborah Long or Victor Batey, with questions or scheduling requests. For more information, you can refer to website of the court.
Traffic Ticket or Criminal Complaint in Willingboro, New Jersey
As previously stated, Willingboro had the most aggravated assault, heroin possession and other indictable crimes (i.e. 644) over the most recent period reported by the New Jersey Administrative Office of the Courts. This is not a statistic that reflects favorably in terms of public safety in the Township. Less serious criminal violations, referred to as disorderly persons offenses, are more in line with what you might expect for a town of Willingboro’s size and population. There were a total of 1,032 offenses of this nature during this same period along with 3,064 moving traffic violations outside of driving while intoxicated or under the influence of drugs/cds. The only major roadway in the municipality is U.S. Route 130 so most of the traffic stops resulting in arrest or charge occur on local streets like Windover Lane (i.e. Route 626), Levitt Parkway, and John F. Kennedy Way.
