On-Line Ticket Review

     The 29th District Court is pleased to offer an online traffic ticket review process for eligible traffic tickets issued by the City of Wayne Police Department.  This allows you to request a review of your traffic ticket online, at your convenience, so you don’t have to come to the courthouse.

Shortly after you submit certain information, we will evaluate your eligibility to participate in this new program.  Once you are deemed eligible to participate, you can sign up to receive emails or text messages with the status of your review as well as the outcome. If you meet the eligibility requirements and the officer and prosecutor agree, you will be offered a no-points violation.

We believe this will save you a significant amount of time while preserving your rights.  We hope you agree.

Mental Health Court

Mental Health Court, sometimes called MHC is designed for adult individuals with a severe mental illness, co-occurring disorder, and/or a developmental disability who have been charged with one or more criminal offenses. The criminal offense must be a misdemeanor or ordinance
violation, or a felony charge which the Prosecuting Attorney is willing to reduce to a misdemeanor. MHC is a voluntary program.

The Mental Health Court Team consists mainly of the 29th District Court Judge, Prosecuting Attorney’s Office, Defense Attorney, Mental Health Coordinator (Probation Officer), Hegira Programs Inc.(Case Manager), (Community Mental Health), and Wayne Police Department.  By working together as a team, our key goal is to provide proper treatment and to keep offenders with mental illnesses out of jail or the criminal justice system.

Each participant will receive a judicially supervised, community-based treatment plan designed and implemented by the Mental Health Court Team.

Treatment plans and other conditions will be reviewed for appropriateness at regular review hearings. Incentives may be offered to reward progress toward goals or following the terms of participation. Sanctions may be imposed if the terms are not followed.

For those who follow the terms of participation for the designated time (usually one year), their cases are either dismissed or the sentence is greatly reduced. If they do not follow the rules or decide to leave the program, the case will return to the original court where the prosecution proceeds as normal.

 City of Wayne's Goodwill Garden

 The City of Wayne Community Garden was created as a collaboration between the 29th District Court and Wayne Rotary Club in order to give the juveniles and adults in our community volunteer opportunities.  The Community Garden is located east of the Police Department on the south side of Michigan Avenue.  Wayne Metro Community Action Agency donates all the plants and seeds to be planted at the garden.  The community of Wayne has been very generous and we have received multiple other donations from a variety of organizations.  All food harvested from the Community Garden is donated to the John Bolde Food Bank at the St. Mary Outreach Center. The food bank provides the citizens of Wayne locally grown nutritious food.  The Community Garden is always looking for volunteers to help work in the garden and we accept volunteers of all ages!  Please contact Casey Cahill at the 29th District Court by phone at (734) 722-5220 or by email at This email address is being protected from spambots.
