Initial Appearance Procedures

Upon entering the courtroom you will be given a numbered tag.  All cellphones must be turned off before entering the courtroom and all hats must be removed.  At the designated time the Judge will enter the courtroom and introduce himself.  He may give a short speech updating the audience on any new or upcoming laws that may be of interest.

When your number is called you must come forward and stand before the Judge.  If you are pleading guilty or no contest you will be informed of the charges against you and the fine amount.  You may make a brief statement at this time.  A decision will be made based on your statement and nay previous record you may have.  

If you are found guilty of the offense, payment is expected immediately.  If you have extenuating circumstance and wish to request an extension of the due date you may do so at this time.
