For almost two years now, Painesville Municipal Court’s community has benefitted from the addition of a Behavioral Health Court Liaison from Crossroads Health and this position is supported by the Lake ADAMHS Board. Ms. Madalynn Mokwa is our current Court Liaison and works on the court premises.

The goal of the Court Liaison is to intervene at an early stage in the court process and address behavioral health and criminogenic needs in treatment in order to reduce recidivism.

What does the court liaison do?
*Seek to empower clients
*Identify and understand client symptoms to effectively reduce and/or cope with their symptoms
*Work to increase follow-through with treatment referrals and to decrease re-arrest rates
*Provide consultation to the court if required
*Members of the court liaison team work closely with court personnel, attorneys, probation officers, collaterals, community service workers, and other service providers to coordinate care beyond a client’s court involvement.

Painesville Municipal Court will be closed Friday November 10th, 2023 in honor of Veterans Day.

Happy National Ohio Day! Each year on Nov. 2, Ohio is recognized for being the 17th state to become an official part of the U.S. It was the first state to join the country from the Northwest Territory and is known as the "Mother of Presidents" because of the seven U.S. presidents who were born in Ohio. Today we celebrate the Buckeye State!

We are deeply saddened by the loss of Barry Crowley. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family. Rest in Peace.

Judge Paul Malchesky and the Staff at Painesville Municipal Court.



Judge Paul R. Malchesky

We are saddened to report the loss of Special Officer Barry Crowley, a current part-time officer with our department.

Barry began his career with Painesville in August 2009. He worked initially as a part-time officer and then was sworn in as a full-time Community Service Officer. He excelled in his departmental LEADS TAC, OHLEG Administrator, and Records Custodian assignments. After retiring, Barry continued working part-time. His duties included vehicle maintenance officer and City Hall security.

Barry was knowledgeable. He could always be counted on to take on added responsibility and go above and beyond in his duties. Well known as cheerful, he was always smiling, and had a great sense of humor. He was known for how proud he was of his daughter, Kristina. He made an impression on everyone who knew him and will be deeply missed.

Our sincere condolences go out to his family and many friends. Funeral arrangements at https://www.brunners.com/m/obituaries/Barry-Crowley-2/Memories?fbclid=IwAR0-oFwoVnnd2zDp-XUYdmt70ynqq9nc_Lw6Ti1wWlpWbKBd0nmg1QTl4Sw_aem_AWrcNK1ZPDeKVVCO6N_b6uglpl3a_165P0exqNOaS4--I7nlou96HpLckMubOOb2Vh0

FDR once said "A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor.” The 2023 graduates have
shown great fortitude in navigating their last four years during a global pandemic.
Congratulations to all graduates as you continue your success and contributions to
community. One of our greatest presidents, Abraham Lincoln said,
"And in the end it's not the years in your life that count; it's the life in your years."
May God bless you all.

03/01/2023

Women’s History Month in March honors the struggles and achievements of women in American history. Arabella Mansfield was the first woman admitted to the bar in 1869 in Iowa. She had not studied at a law school but rather had studied in her brother’s office for two years before taking the bar examination. Curiously enough, in the same year Ada H. Kepley became the first woman in the United States to graduate from law school. A year later, in 1870, Esther Morriswas appointed as a justice of the peace in Wyoming Territory – the first woman in the United States appointed to a judicial position. Genevieve Cline was the first womanappointed to a federal court in 1928 when President Coolidge nominated her for a seat on the U.S. Customs Court. She remained on the court for 25 years. Florence Allen, who had previously been a justice on the Ohio Supreme Court, was appointed to the U.S. Court of Appeals, Sixth Circuit in 1932, making her the first woman to be appointed as a judge to a federal appeals court. Currently, there are three women on the U.S. Supreme Court, 1/3 of that body.
