Pleas

You can enter any one of the following three pleas:

     GUILTY
     NO CONTEST
     NOT GUILTY

A plea of NO CONTEST is not an admission of guilt, but is an admission of the truth of the facts stated in the affidavit.  It is then for the court to determine whether the admitted facts constitute the offense. 

A plea of NOT GUILTY should be entered if you dispute the facts stated in the affidavit or feel they do not constitute the offense.  A trial date will then be set. 

If you plead GUILTY, you will be given an opportunity to tell the court anything you feel may mitigate or lesson the sentence. If convicted of a traffic offense, a record of the conviction will be sent to the Bureau of Motor Vehicles. 

If you do not respond or appear for your case in court, a bench warrant will be issued and/or your license may be forfeited. 

As this is a Mayor's Court, you have a right to appeal any decision of the court within 10 days of the final disposition in the court.  To appeal the case, it will be necessary to complete the notice of appeal form from the clerk.  This will entitle you to a trial de novo (new trial) in the Warren County Court located in Lebanon, Ohio.
