Entering a Plea
Here are your three options.
To PLEAD GUILTY
You must sign the back of the citation. Then mail or deliver the citation in person to the Court along with the appropriate fine amount. You will need to contact the Courts to determine the exact amount. A receipt for your payment will be mailed to you if a self-addressed stamped envelope is enclosed with your payment.
To PLEAD NOT GUILTY
It must be made in person at the Court prior to the expiration of the 15-day period. At that time a court date will be set for your trial. A plea of Not Guilty cannot be entered by telephone.
To PLEAD NOLO CONTENDERE or NO CONTEST
You will be responsible for the fees and costs assessed for your citation(s). You may request deferred disposition/probation to keep the citation off your record in person at the Court. You may also elect to complete a driving safety course to keep your citation from appearing on your driving record.
