Your citation or bond papers are the key to understanding when and where you need to be to handle your case in the City of Americus Municipal Court.  READ THEM AND BRING THEM TO COURT.

Some tickets and citations can be paid prior to your court date without you appearing in court. Instructions on paying these tickets and citations can be found on the Fines Payable without an Appearance page or by clicking here Fines Payable with out an Appearance .

The court date on your citation, ticket, or bond is for your initial appearance or arraignment.  At this hearing, you can enter your plea to the charges against you. Guilty pleas will be disposed of at that time.  Pleas of not guilty will be put on a trial day or contested day which is usually two to four weeks later.  At the contested hearing the officer will be present as will any witnesses that the officer has subpoenaed.  You may also subpoena witnesses and bring evidence to show the Judge at the contested hearing.  Remember, unless you have paid your citation prior to the court date on the citation or bond you must attend court on the date on the citation or bond even if you want to contest the matter.
