criminal lawaThe court you are charged in depends on a few things.  If the charge is a felony, it will be in superior court of the county where the crime was supposedly committed. 

For example, felony charges in Kitsap County are generally filed in District Court for the first appearance and then moved to Superior Court for arraignment

If the charge is a misdemeanor or a gross misdemeanor, the court depends on the law enforcement agency that arrested you or stopped you.  If it was the County Sheriff or a State Trooper, then the charge will be filed in district court.  If it was a city cop, it will be filed in the municipal court of that city.
