The Process

Defendants are presumed innocent and have a right to an attorney at each and every stage of the proceedings. Defendants are guaranteed certain constitutional rights, including the right to a trial, to cross-examine and confront the prosecutor's witness, to put on a defense, to remain silent, and to force the prosecutor to prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt.

For certain minor violations, pleas of guilty can be made by mail or at the court office. Some summonses require a personal appearance as noted on the hard copy provided to you upon issuance of the notice to appear. If you have any questions as to whether your personal appearance is required, feel free to contact the Clerk of the Court.
