The Springfield, Oregon Police Department cites thousands of people into Municipal Court each year. The Springfield Municipal Court is a unique court due to the Springfield Jail, which has to be kept filled in order for the city government to justify its existence. It is primarily used to extort money out of people through bail which is then later forfeited when a deal is struck. This is especially true for DUII cases and shoplifting cases.
Fortunately, Springfield is home to a reasonable set of Springfield city prosecutors who know how to value an Oregon criminal case. Oftentimes, a diversion agreement is available if the facts and equities warrant it.
