What happens when I appear in court?

If you appear in court on the date listed on your citation, you may enter a plea to the charge. You may plead Guilty, No Contest, or Not Guilty. This date is not the trial date

If you plead Guilty or No Contest, the Court will find you Guilty and the matter will be resolved at this time. If you plead Not Guilty you may meet with the Village Attorney for a pretrial conference.
