The Circuit Court is the trial court of general jurisdiction in Virginia; this means that the Court has authority to try a full range of cases both criminal and civil. In criminal cases, the Circuit Court has jurisdiction over the trial of all felonies (offenses that may be punished by commitment to the State penitentiary) and some misdemeanors.
The Circuit Court has the authority to impanel grand juries. Regular grand juries are convened at each term of court to consider indictments prepared by the Commonwealth’s Attorney to determine whether there is probable cause that the person accused has committed the crime charged in the indictment and should stand trial.
The Circuit Court has appellate jurisdiction over all appeals from the General District Court in civil and criminal cases and from juvenile and domestic relations court in domestic and criminal cases.
