Any persons under the age of 16 years old, you must with a parent or guardian make an appointment to speak with the Judge about your citation in open court.
A plea of NO CONTEST means that you do not contest the State’s charge(s) against you but are not admitting guilt and agree to pay the fine/costs assessed by the judge. A plea of GUILTY means that you do not contest the State’s charge(s) against you and admit guilt and agree to pay the fine/costs assessed by the judge. A plea of NOT GUILTY and you would have to decide either a trial by judge waiving my right to a jury trial or trial by jury. This means that you intend to contest the charge(s) against you. Your case will be rescheduled for trial and you will be mailed notice of when to appear for the pre-trial hearing.
Pay citation in full: appear in person, pay online, or mail in payment. Submitting full payment for your fine and costs constitutes a plea of no contest and the offense will be reported as a conviction.
