Civil Infractions

Disclaimers: By paying a ticket via this web site, the defendant is admitting responsibility for the ticket and is waiving his/her right to a hearing. Once a defendant admits responsibility for a ticket, if applicable for the offense listed on the ticket, an abstract is processed with Secretary of State to assess points on the defendant's driving record.

Admit Responsibility: I enter my appearance, waive my right to a hearing, and I admit responsibility for the civil infraction alleged on this ticket. I understand that there may be points assessed through the Secretary of State, which will appear on my driving record.

Misdemeanors

A misdemeanor is considered a minor criminal offense. Although it is considered a minor offense, you still have certain rights under the law. You have the following rights:

  1. To please guilty or not guilty.
  2. To have a trial by jury, where you could call witnesses on your behalf; to see, hear and question all witnesses against you; to be a witness for yourself or to remain silent (and no comment can be made on your refusal to testify); and to be presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
  3. To an attorney appointed at public expense IF you are indigent (without money to hire an attorney) AND to offense requires a minimum jail sentence, OR the court determines it might sentence you to jail.

By choosing to plead guilty to take advantage of being sentenced to paying the fines/costs related to your case without having a trial, you are waiving your right to a trial of any kind (by judge or jury) and all of the right described above.
