FINE AND FEE INFORMATION
Court fines and fees are established through recommended guidelines from the Uniform Fine/Bail Schedule. A judge is not obligated to set the fine in the amount listed but can set the fine in an appropriate amount given the facts and circumstances of each case (including the individual’s prior record).
You may contact the court for an estimated fine/fee on your citation. Please be aware that the estimated cost given to you will be based on the Uniform Fine/Bail Schedule and the information you provide.
