Municipal Court

Contested Hearing

If you believe you did not commit the violation, you should select box three (3) and have a contested hearing.  Unless you request the officer to be subpoenaed, the procedure at the hearing will be as follows: the Judge will read the sworn statement of the officer.  Then you may testify or present any evidence or witnesses that you wish.  Please be prepared with your evidence and witnesses at that time.  If you want to have the officer or any technician present, please advise the Clerk at the time you present your ticket or as soon thereafter as possible, but in any event at least 14 days prior to the hearing.

A contested infraction hearing is a civil case and the Judge will decide the case based on the preponderance of the evidence.
