5155.09 Hearing.

When an affidavit has been filed as provided by section 5155.08 of the Revised Code, the resident shall be brought forthwith before the court of common pleas, whereupon a hearing shall be had as in a prosecution for misdemeanor. Such resident is entitled, on demand, to a jury trial, but if no such demand is made on his first appearance before the court such trial is deemed waived and the cause shall be heard by the court alone.
