Contest and Continuance

Court Contests

If you wish to contest your citation, you must make such fact known by submitting a written notice, IN PERSON, to the Court with a "Not Guilty" plea, on or before your appearance date listed on your citation. Please include in your notice:

  • The citation number; 
  • Your name;
  • Your mailing address;
  • Your daytime telephone number. 

Once this notice is received, your case will be placed on a pre-trial docket in order to meet with the prosecutor. If you cannot come to an agreement, then you will be set for a trial. You will receive notification of your pre-trial date by mail. If you appear in person, notification of your pre-trial date will be given at that time.


Any request for continuance of a court date must be received NO LESS THAN 3 business days PRIOR to your court date, and must include "just cause," as all requests for continuances must be approved by the Judge.

Additionally, you must be prepared to pay all fines and court costs assessed by the Court on your court date.
