Municipal Court Ask Arvada

Plea Bargains

The City Attorney's Office reviews every file in advance of the assigned court date.  Anyone eligible for a plea bargain will receive one in the mail approximately two to three weeks after the citation is issued. If you do not receive a plea bargain in the mail, you are required to come to court on the date scheduled on your ticket.  If you do receive a plea bargain, read it carefully for the information on reduction in points, and your fine.  If you would like to pay your fine and accept the plea bargain online, please go to www.citepay.com.  There will be a convenience fee assessed by the vendor.  Please note: not all offenses are eligible for on-line resolution.  The system will indicate if your charge is or is not eligible.  If it is not eligible, you will need to appear on your court date.  If you choose to pay by mail, please mail a signed copy of the form with your check or money order made payable to the City of Arvada. Please write your summons on your check or money order. If you decide to not accept the plea offer, you must appear on or before your scheduled court appearance between the hours of 8:30 and 3:00pm to enter a plea of not guilty. Some citations will be eligible for a pre-trial conference with the City Attorney, which will be set at the time the plea is entered. If your case is not eligible for a pre-trial conference, it will be set directly for trial. A final pre-trial status hearing may be scheduled at the Judge's discretion.
