The Town court in Pelham adjudicates and prosecutes the laws of the Village of Pelham and Village of Pelham Manor. Historically, the villages within the Town of Pelham operated independent court systems. The village courts were consolidated into one court a number of years ago for cost savings and efficiency purposes.
The court has civil jurisdiction under the applicable state and local law and criminal jurisdiction as applicable. The town justices, John DeChiaro and John P. Gardner, preside alternately, and are elected to four-year terms.
The Town of Pelham Court sits regularly on Wednesday mornings for Civil Cases/Village & Town Ordnance/Parking and Moving Violations, beginning at 9:30 a.m.. at 20 Fifth Avenue, Pelham and Thursday evenings for Criminal Cases, beginning at 6:00 p.m. at 20 Fifth Avenue Pelham. Arraignments, hearings and trials are held as necessary during the week.
Criminal Matters - The Pelham Town Court hears all crimes commited in the Village of Pelham and Pelham Manor Jurisdictions. These maters are prosecuted by the Westchester County District Attorney's Office. Cases are heard on Thursday evenings at 6:00 PM.
