Payment to the wrong court will result in delay of credit. Offenses involving Family Violence, Minors in possession of alcohol or Tobacco, and Defendants 16 years or younger at the time of the offense are NOT ELIGIBLE for online payments and MUST make a personal appearance in open court. Making payment on-line constitutes a plea of Nolo Contendere (No Contest) and waives your right to a trial by jury and may result in a conviction of the offense.
