APPEALING PARKING VIOLATIONS
Appeals for parking violations are heard at the Clemson Municipal Court on Mondays and Fridays, between the hours of 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.


MOTION FOR NEW TRIAL
You must first file a written Motion for New Trial with the Clerk at Court within 5 days of your court date. The motion should include your full name, date of birth, current mailing address, phone number, a copy of the ticket/warrant, a full explanation of your reason for requesting a new trial. Please send an additional copy of the motion so that we may stamp it received by the Court. If the Judge grants your motion, a new bench trial or jury trial will be scheduled in our Court. If the Judge denies the motion, you will then need to file an appeal.

 

NOTICE OF APPEAL
If a Motion for New Trial is denied, and you wish to appeal a conviction by a Judge or Jury, a written Notice of Appeal must be delivered to the Court within 10 days of your court date. The Notice of Appeal should include you full name, date of birth, mailing address, phone number, a copy of the ticket/warrant and a full explanation of your reason to appeal. Please bring an additional copy of the Appeal so that we may stamp it received by the Court.
  After you have filed the appeal, the Court will forward the appeal to the Court of General Sessions located in Pickens, S.C. You will be notified by the Clerk of Court for Pickens County as to the time and date your appeal will be heard.
