(A) In all prosecutions for any offense for which the city, with concurrence of the Court, seeks imposition of a fine of more than $500, plus costs or imprisonment, trial shall be by jury unless waived by the defendant and the city. If trial by jury is waived, trial shall be by the Court.
(B) An election waiving jury trial may be changed by the defendant at any time prior to the day for which trial by the Court is set. An election demanding jury trial may be changed at any time prior to the commencement of proceedings to impanel the jury for the trial, but if that change occurs after the case has been set for jury trial, it may not thereafter be changed so as again to demand trial by jury.
