Manistee Justice Court

If you received a ticket for DUI or a misdemeanor criminal offense and were directed to go to the Manistee Justice Court, this means you were arrested by DPS or the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office. If the arrest was made by a city police officer, your case should be handled by city court.

David Cantor reviews the Manistee Justice Court and it’s presiding Judge:


The jurisdictional boundaries of the Manistee Justice Court are Cactus Road to the North, Camelback Road to the South, I-17 to the East and West 91st Avenue to the West. This jurisdiction is not a perfect rectangle. If you were stopped, cited and instructed to go to the Manistee Justice Court, contact the DM Cantor. Skilled attorneys will make sure the arrest was made in the appropriate district. The case can be thrown out if you were not within legal boundaries.

The judge is Donald Watts. Judge Handley has been in his position since 2006. He served in the United States Air Force. He is known to be a nice guy. Most people serving as a Justice of the Peace (JP) did not go to law school. They have no legal background. These judges won a popularity contest and were elected. After six weeks of training, they are sent to sit on the bench and judge cases. Most people would not be comfortable going to a surgeon that only has six weeks of training.
