Appearing in Court

If your charge does not appear on the Violations Bureau List, you must appear before the judge. All cases involved in an accident must appear before the judge. In addition, all defendants age 17 and younger must appear in Court with a parent or guardian.

If your charge appears on the Violations Bureau List and you wish to plead guilty you may pay your fine before your assigned court date.  The Frontenac Municipal Court accepts cash, credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, and Discover)*, check or money order for the payment of court fines. However, the Municipal Court only accepts cash as bond to remove a warrant. Bonds can be posted at the Court Office Window during normal business hours or you may go to the Police Department to post bond after hours.

The Frontenac Municipal Court accepts payments online. Most tickets appearing on our Violations Bureau List may be paid thru our on-line payment process or call (877) 793-7144 to pay over the phone. Cases in Warrant status MAY NOT be paid online, nor may bond be posted online.

If you wish to appear before the judge or plead not guilty to your charge, you must appear in Court on the date listed on your citation.
