Which Courthouse in Tulsa do I go to and where is it at?

Over the years hundreds of people have called my office and were not even sure which courthouse they had to appear at, so if you are one of those people don't feel bad. Which courthouse you go to depends on which jurisdiction you have been charged in. If you have been charged with a crime and you have to go to court in Tulsa there are three possibilities.

  1. Tulsa County Court (State Charges for Felonies and Misdemeanors)-500 S Denver Ave Tulsa, OK 74103
  2. Most people charged with crimes, that have to go to court in Downtown Tulsa are charged in Tulsa County District Court. If you were arrested and booked into the Tulsa County Jail and were released on bond without going to Court, chances are you are charged in Tulsa County Court. If you were given a yellow card when you were released from jail that says you must appear in room "173", you are charged in Tulsa County Court. If you have to appear in Court at "9:00 AM" you are charged in Tulsa County District Court. If you were arrested or ticketed by an Oklahoma Highway Patrol Officer or a Tulsa County Deputy you are charged in Tulsa County Court. If while you were in the Tulsa County Jail you saw a judge on a TV screen, you are charged in tulsa County Court. Here is the address and picture of the Tulsa County Courthouse.

  3. Tulsa Municipal Court (City of Tulsa Municipal Misdemeanor Charges)-Police courts Building, 2nd Floor 600 Civic Center Tulsa, OK 74103
  4. Most people that were given a ticket requiring them to appear at court by a Tulsa Police Officer are charged in Tulsa Municipal Court. If you were given a ticket and must appear in Division 1, 2, or 3 (Often written on the ticket as Div. I, Div. II, or Div III) you are charged in Tulsa Municipal Court. If you were told you must appear at "8:30 AM" than you are charged in Tulsa Municipal Court. If you were arrested or ticketed by an Oklahoma Highway Patrol Officer or a Tulsa County Deputy you are not charged in Municipal Court you are charged in Tulsa County Court. Here is the address and picture of the Tulsa County Courthouse.

  5. Northern District of Oklahoma Federal Court (Federal Felonies and Misdemeanors)-333 West 4th Street Tulsa, OK 74103
  6. If you were given a summons by a Federal Agent or a US Marshall to appear in court, you are most certainly charged in the Nortern District of Oklahoma Federal Court. While it is possible to be charged with a misdemeanor in Federal Court, it is not very likely. If you bonded out of jail without appearing in Court you are not charged in Federal Court. If you saw a judge via a TV screen you are not charged in Federal Court. If you were told that Court was either at 2:00 PM or 3:00 PM, you are charged in Federal Court. If you were told that you needed to meet with the probation officer before court, you are charged in Federal Court.
