Lansing Town Court: DWI and Petit Larceny

Lansing Courthouse and Town Hall
29 Auburn Road = Route 34B


Lansing, NY sits on the east side of Cayuga Lake. It is a beautiful little town. Crossroads Bar and Grill restaurant is a local favorite, IMHO better food by far than many of the fancy Ithaca hot spots, and sits minutes down the road from the courthouse. They have sitting on an outside patio for those great weather spring and summer months. The courthouse sits off of Route 34B / aka Auburn Road which becomes Peruville Road up at the Dunkin.

The Sign on 34B to Look for!!

Across from Cross roads there is the Dunkin Dounts Coffee/ Xtra gas station. Gas here is great because they have premium without any ethanol.

Lansing Court jurisdiction takes in our big Ithaca Mall, so it sees lots of shoplifting (petit larceny) cases from Target and Best Buy. In addition, the surrounding byways and highways are dark, winding, and not well developed so many DWIs cases wind up here.
I see many more DWIs around here with accidents or just winding up in ditch in the icy and snowy winter months.

Conveniently close by are: The Tompkins County Jail, and Tompkins Sheriff Station off Warren Road (one exit up 13), and just up the road from the Tompkins County Airport.

Turn in to Court Before the Sign or You've Gone Too Far on 34 B


There are two court judges, two court clerks and two different court sessions: one in the morning and one in the evening. Just the luck of the draw which you get, both judges are fair.

Court Sessions are: Thursday starting at 7:00 p.m. and Tuesdays starting at 9:00 a.m.
It is a very well run, and organized court. Out of the hundred (yes 100 +) I go to this is a favorite for there great response to paperwork and timing.
