Plea options:

  • Deferred Adjudication
    Deferred Adjudication is a method to have your citation dismissed upon the successful completion of a probationary period – with the minimum 30 days and a maximum of 180 days probationary period. Even though you plead “guilty” or “no contest,” the court does not “find you guilty” and the citation does not show as a conviction on your driving record.  Instead, the court defers further proceedings and places you on probation for a period of time with conditions of probation.  Click here to see if you're eligible to request deferred adjudication.
  • No Contest with Driver's Safety Course (DSC)
    This plea means you are "not contesting" the offense and are requesting to take a Driver's Safety Course in lieu of paying the full fine.  Click here to see if you're eligible to request to take DSC.
  • Guilty
    Entering this plea means that you are admitting to the offense as charged. You will be required to pay the applicable fine plus all court costs.  A guilty plea could affect your insurance rates and you're driver's license.  Click here for details on payment plans for a guilty plea.
  • No Contest (or Nolo Contendre)
    This plea means that you are “not contesting” the offense. You are not admitting that you committed the offense nor are you denying it either. However, you understand that you will still be responsible for paying the applicable fine plus all court costs.  Click here for details on payment plans for a no contest plea.
  • Not Guilty
    When you enter this plea, you are stating to the court that you believe you are innocent of the charge and you wish to have your case placed on the trial docket. You must appear before the Judge if you wish to plead not guilty and request a bench or jury trial.
