Online Municipal Case Resolution

The public now has two options to resolve their matters without having to appear in court.

  • Request a plea offer from prosecutor

This method allows you to dispute specific moving violations where defendants commonly provide additional documentation to seek a reduced charge or points before pleading guilty. Your case will be reviewed by the prosecutor, and you will be notified with their recommendation.

  • Plea Online

This is the electronic version of the Plea by Mail form which allows defendants or attorneys to electronically submit a plea of guilty or not guilty to certain offenses. This form can only be used in certain traffic (including parking) cases or to plead guilty in certain non-traffic cases. This method is not for seeking a reduced charge or to dispute points. Make sure to upload any supporting documents you want the Judge to review.
