Rahway City Municipal Court
The Rahway City Municipal Court only hears misdemeanor criminal offenses and traffic offense cases. In some instances, individuals charged with more serious offenses will have their initial court appearance in Rahway City Municipal Court before their matter is transferred to the Union County Prosecutor’s Office in Elizabeth. A conviction for a violation like DWI, driving while suspended, or possession of marijuana can tarnish your record for a long time.
