I Received a Traffic Ticket, what do I do?

- You must complete the right side of the ticket pleading guilty or not guilty and return it to this court by the date noted on the lower left side.

  • If you plead guilty you will receive a fine notice in the mail.
  • If you plead not guilty we will assign a new court date to meet with the Assistant District Attorney or information on how to contact her in writing.
  • If you receive a plea offer you must "accept" or "reject" it, sign it and return it to this court.

- Once you have accepted and returned the form, you will receive a fine notice by mail.

- If you “reject” the plea – you will be scheduled for trial. This requires an appearance by you or a legal representative on your behalf.

Please be patient as this process can take some time.  However, it is your responsibility to see that your ticket is resolved.
