If you have been stopped for a DUI or a misdemeanor criminal crime and have been instructed to go to the North Mesa Justice Court, this indicates that they have been arrested by either the Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS) or the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office. If you’re arrested by a city police officer, then the individual should have been directed to city court.
The North Mesa Justice Court’s jurisdictional boundaries are Thomas Road to the north, Baseline Road to the south, Gilbert Road to the east and Freeway 101 to the west. These jurisdictional boundaries are actually two different islands of land. Therefore, if an individual was arrested outside of these boundaries and told to go to the North Mesa Justice Court, there is a defense to the charge which can result in the entire case being thrown out.
David Cantor discusses the North Mesa Justice Court and the presiding judge:
The North Mesa Justice Court is located at 1837 South Mesa Drive, basically at Baseline Road and Mesa Drive, on the east side of the road.
