If you are found guilty and you disagree with the judge's decision, you may appeal your case to the Hunterdon County Superior Court, but if you appeal, you must file the appeal within 20 calendar days of your conviction (this includes weekend days). You will be required to pay a deposit in the form of a check in the amount of $500.00 that will be applied against the cost of preparing a transcript of the trial. Please contact the Municipal Court office for the name of the transcription service in which you can make the check payable to. You also will be required to pay a $75.00 filing fee. Please ask the court staff to provide you with a copy of the appeal packet, “How to Appeal a Decision of a Municipal Court.” Information on representing yourself in an appeal is also available at www.njcourtsonline.com, the Judiciary's Web site. If you decide to appeal a conviction, you may request of the judge that your sentence be stayed pending the results of your appeal.
