Online Plea allows you to ask the Court to electronically enter your plea of guilty without having to come to court for a pretrial or trial. Once you make the request, the Court will make decisions about your case using the same considerations as they would if you had appeared in person.
Your request is submitted to a magistrate or judge and is either accepted or denied by that magistrate or judge. Decisions made by a magistrate or judge are made using the same criteria considered when someone appears in person.
The Court recognizes that there may be several reasons why it is a hardship for an individual to appear in court. Online Plea takes away those barriers.
