About Cheatham County General Sessions Court
General Sessions courts in Tennessee have the authority to resolve criminal cases which result in a misdemeanor disposition. For example, if you were charged with the possession of marijuana with the intent to sell, it is a felony. If the District Attorney were willing to reduce the charge to a simple possession, it could be resolved in General Sessions. If they were not, the case must go to the Circuit Court of Cheatham County in order to be resolved.
Judge: Phillip A. Maxey
