Casa Grande Justice Court Jurisdiction
The Seligman Justice Court Precinct of Yavapai County includes all of Seligman and Ash Fork and covers a significant portion of the Interstate 40 in Northern Arizona. People travel through the I40 to reach Flagstaff, to travel to Las Vegas, and most commonly, to visit the Grand Canyon.
This portion of Arizona is patrolled by the Department of Public Safety (DPS) and there is a strong emphasis on enforcement of traffic violations in this area. On the map below, the major danger zones for enhanced traffic enforcement is detailed in red. If you received a ticket outside of this geographic region but were still cited into the Seligman Justice Court, there may be a problem with your jurisdiction. Although this is relatively uncommon, it can happen, and it means that your ticket was filed in the wrong jurisdiction.
About the Judge, John Ellsworth
Casa Grande Justice Court sees a very high number of traffic violations, and Judge Ellsworth takes these violations seriously. This jurisdiction at times sees devastating accidents, resulting in injuries and deaths. It seems to us that Judge Ellsworth is using his position as a Judge to encourage and promote safe driving while not being overly punitive in his rulings.
Prior to serving on the bench, Judge Ellsworth had retired from the Pinal County Sheriff’s office as a lieutenant. His earlier careers included enlisting in the United States Air Force as a military police offer, joining the Casa Grande Police Department and retiring 20 years later as a Sergeant, and serving three years for the Arizona Department of Corrections as a criminal investigator.
Officers Patrolling Casa Grande
Officer D. Redig, Badge Number 06331
Officer Doug Redig is an Arizona Department of Public Safety officer who writes a very large number of traffic tickets out of this jurisdiction. If speeds approach 100 miles per hour or higher, he will generally cite an individual with both criminal / excessive speeding and reckless driving. This results in clients being charged with both a class 2 misdemeanor and a class 3 misdemeanor facing a total of 11 points. According to many of our clients, interactions with Officer Redig can be very stern and tense and cause a lot of anxiety.
In this citation, Officer Redig used a radar device to estimate this individual’s speed, and issued a citation for both charges, reckless driving and criminal speeding.
Officer B. Krum, Badge Number 010134
Officer Krum is another Department of Public Safety Officer who writes tickets and does traffic patrol out of the Seligman Justice Court area. His style of writing tickets is less thorough than Officer Redig’s, who tends to be very precise. In the following citation, he only wrote this individual for criminal speeding and not reckless driving.
