What is a MANDATORY appearance?

Some charges require an appearance before the Judge (even if you just wish to plead guilty), due to the nature of the violation. The most common violations that require an appearance include Speeding in a School Zone, No Proof of Insurance, and driver license violations. A court appearance is also required for all animal control and other city ordinance violations, as well as the majority of criminal charges. Please contact the court to determine if your appearance is required.
