PROCEDURE FOR MOTION TO REOPEN

 

If you have failed to appear for your initial, pre-trial, or trial court date and the date of conviction is within six (6) months, please read the following:

 

 

  1. SUBMIT A WRITTEN MOTION TO REOPEN YOUR CASE(S).  
  2. Write down a description of charge and/or citation number(s).
  3.  Reason for the request to reopen.
  4. Include your current address, phone number.
  5. Include your license number or valid Social Security Number.
  6. Along with your motion, submit $25.00 for each citation

 

IF YOU FAIL TO INCLUDE ANSWERS TO 1 THRU 5, YOU WILL NOT BE NOTIFIED OF A REOPEN DATE.  Costs may be imposed if the motion changes your conviction.   If your license is suspended or in the State Debt Collection, it will remain until your fine is paid in full.  Do not contact the court on how this needs to be done.  You may want to consult with an attorney if needed.
