Sign-in: Even though you may have met with the officer in court and discussed your matter, it is important to check-in with the court clerk in the front of the courtroom. Failure to advise the clerk that you are in court may result in your case not being called.
Prosecutor: For the most part, tickets are prosecuted by the District Attorney’s Office. This is the same office which prosecuted criminal cases such as misdemeanor drug possession and felony assault.
It is possible to reach a plea bargain on most cases. It has been our experience that excessive speeding, repeat offenders, and cell phone violators will have a difficult time securing a favorable resolution.
Court Clerk: The role of the Court Clerk is to assist the Judges in carrying out their duties. They may assist the Judges in court as well as out of court. Many clerks send letters to litigants, collect fine monies, and help answer day-to-day questions before the court.FAQs
Is the date on the front of my ticket my court date?

Can’t every speeding ticket be dismissed or resolved with zero points?
Every case is unique. Every court is unique. It is difficult to make a blanket statement with regard the ultimate resolution of a legal matter.
I received a ticket from a State Trooper and I was given a trial date to appear in court. Will I have an opportunity to meet to plea bargain this case?
