You are here today to answer to a charge for a violation of village ordinance(s). When your name is called, step to the front of the magistrate’s bench and remain standing until your case is resolved. A copy of the complaint or ticket was previously served upon you and you acknowledge service.
Upon hearing the charge against you, you will then enter a plea. You have a choice of one of three pleas that you may enter.
There are additional rights that you have, such as being able to consult with your attorney before entering a plea. Also, you have the right in any case where the law provides for a penalty in excess of $150.00 or a jail sentence to a trial by jury. These requests must be made to the Avon Lake Municipal Court.
Please select the plea from the dropdown that you wish to enter today. You should be prepared to pay your fine and court cost before you are excused.
*If you are not a citizen of the United States, you are hereby advised that conviction of the offense to which you are pleading guilty or no contest may have the consequences of deportation, exclusion from admission to the United States, or denial of naturalization pursuant to the laws of the United States.
