(1) While all municipalities are encouraged to dispose of all current and pending municipal charges as expediently as possible per terms of the agreement,
municipal offenders do not include those individuals who may be serving a sentence whether such sentence has been imposed in the Municipal, Magistrate, Family, and/or General
Sessions Courts and/or where such individuals have General Sessions Court charges pending. For purposes of the agreement a municipal offender is defined as:
"an individual arrested and charged with the violation of a municipal ordinance or with the violation of a state criminal law within the municipality's boundaries which is triable either in magistrate's court or in municipal court."
(2) In developing this report, the arresting agency was used as the criteria for identifying those individuals as "municipal offenders." Caution should be used in interpreting the information since the arresting municipality could have arrested the individual on another municipality's arrest warrants and/or a magistrate's arrest warrant for an offense that occurred outside of the arresting municipality's jurisdiction but in whose jurisdiction the offender was found. In the latter case, the arresting municipality would not be responsible for payment of any fees for arresting the individual under the terms of the agreement.

Inmate information changes quickly, and the posted information may not reflect the current information. An arrest does not mean that the inmate has been convicted of the crime.
