The Magistrates Court is the first level of the Queensland Courts system. Most criminal cases are first heard, in some form, in this court. Most civil actions are also heard here.
A person charged with a criminal offence must be brought before the Magistrates Court as a soon as possible after the charge is laid. The magistrate, who presides over the court, will decide whether there is enough evidence for the person to face trial and, if so, which court should hear the case. The magistrate may commit the case to the District or Supreme Court depending on the seriousness of the offence.
The Magistrates Court can deal with less serious offences (summary offences) such as traffic infringements, minor offences such as shoplifting or disorderly behaviour, and less serious offences involving burglary, assault, fraud and drugs.
The Proserpine Magistrates Court is located at
17 Main Street
