Request A Mitagation hearing

You can request a MITIGATION HEARING, where you admit you have committed the infraction, but want to explain the circumstances. You cannot appeal the judges decision after your hearing. You may submit a written statement (adjudication by mail) instead of appearing in person at your hearing.

Request A Contested Hearing

You may also request a CONTESTED HEARING, where you deny that you committed the infraction. If you request a contested hearing, the Court will schedule you for a pre-hearing settlement conference. The goal of the pre-hearing conference is to reach a resolution without the formality and expense of a contested hearing (trial). You may skip the pre-hearing conference and proceed directly to trial, by completing the waiver form that will be sent to you with your pre-hearing conference notice. You may submit a written statement (adjudication by mail) instead of appearing at your contested pre-hearing conference; however, you cannot appeal the judges ruling if you do so.
