Directions on how to enter you plea of guilty or not guilty are provided on your ticket. Your ticket will also provide you with other useful information such as the officer’s name, your speed, the date of the incident as well as the location, your charge and many other details.
Entering a Not Guilty Plea: Upon receiving your not guilty plea, the court will send you a letter advising you when to come to court. At this court appearance you have the opportunity to present your case’s strengths and weaknesses.
Entering a Guilty Plea: Once you enter a guilty plea, the court will send you a fine notice. This fine should be paid before the deadline; a failure to do so can result in a suspended license.
