Citation Information

The issuance of a citation alleging a violation of a state law or local ordinance initiates the court process. The citation indicates a deposit permitted amount or mandatory appearance. 

Juveniles who receive a citation must appear with a parent or legal guardian.

The court is not required to impose the amount indicated if you are convicted. The forfeiture amount could increase or decrease in response to and as indicated by circumstances of conduct at the time of the arrest, past record, or extenuating circumstances pointed out by the defendant.
