i was placed under arrest on multiple charges. i have a notice to appear in superior court, and municipal court. the dates on the notice are 3 days apart. (also on the superior notice they put the wrong last name down, I'm not sure if that matters of not but its weird). both of the notices were handed to me by the same officer on my way out of the station.
If you have notices for both courts you need to go to both courts otherwise an arrest warrant could issue. Get yourself a good lawyer and get a good defense if your case is in Superior Court you face jail.

You will go to both. Get a lawyer, who will likely delay the municipal court if there is a chance to get the charges in superior sent down to municipal as well.

Listen to Attorney H. Scott Aalsberg he has given you excellent advice. You always have a chance of winning but your best chance is with the best lawyer. I recommend you worry about the charges that you are facing, not the typographical errors which do not matter. You need to retain the best criminal defense attorney you can afford. Good luck.

You were likely charged with indictable and non-indictable charges. they should have all been sent to the county. This happens often. If this is the case call the municipal court administrator and explain. they likely will see it is a mistake and forward all the charges up, or they might say the county sent alp the charges back in which case you do not have to go to the county. Or they could be two sets of different charges and you have to go to both. Call the town court. It would be best to retain an experienced criminal defense attorney to work this out, consolidate the charges and represent you on all of them.
It's impossible to say what is going on without seeing the notices. Take the notices to a lawyer and review them. It's possible the lawyer can consolidate the cases. Regardless, you have criminal charges pending so you need a lawyer...the sooner the better.
