The Marshall Municipal Court processes approximately 6,000 Class "C" Misdemeanor offenses per year. These offenses consist of moving and non-moving traffic violations (such as speeding and failure to maintain financial responsibility) to penal code violations (such as public intoxication, theft less than $50 and assault by contact). These offenses also include violations of city ordinances (such as junk vehicles, animal violations and excessive noise).

Most cases filed in the Marshall Municipal Court are filed by the Marshall Police Department, Marshall Fire Department, Marshall Animal Control and Marshall Code Enforcement. A ticket or citation (sometimes a report is received and a complaint is generated to summons a person to appear in court) is issued by an officer, and a copy of the ticket is filed in the Marshall Municipal Clerk's Office. The ticket is entered, and the defendant (the person to whom the ticket was issued) is to appear at  the clerk's office by the date written on the ticket. If a person wishes to pay the fine, he/she is allowed to do so without appearing (all city code violations must appear before the judge for sentencing). If a person wishes to appear before the judge, he/she is placed on a plea docket and is summoned to appear before the judge.
