Justices of the peace are judges of general jurisdiction who act in the territory of the Russian Federation as courts of first instance. By law, justices of the peace are vested with the rights to consider civil, criminal and other disputes. At the same time, the maximum term of punishment when making decisions by a magistrate should not exceed 3 years, otherwise the case cannot be considered in the court of first instance and is sent for consideration to other bodies.
