Shoreline Arrest FAQ’s
If you’ve been arrested for a misdemeanor offense by a Shoreline police officer your court hearing will be scheduled in the King County District Court’s (KCDC) West Division Shoreline facility. Shoreline’s courthouse also handles cases for misdemeanor arrests made in the city of Kenmore.
The city of Shoreline does not have its own prosecutor’s office, instead it contracts with a private law firm called Moberly & Roberts to handle its misdemeanor cases. This law firm represents several other King County municipalities.
However, if you’ve been charged with a felony in either Shoreline or Kenmore your case will held in the King County Superior Courthouse located in Seattle. Felony charges or arrests made by a Washington State Trooper or King County Sheriff’s Deputy are considered “state cases” and are prosecuted by the King County prosecutor’s office also located in downtown Seattle.
