You May Request a Continuance

If you have been issued a notice to appear on your ticket citation and for some reason cannot appear on your scheduled court date, an experienced criminal defense attorney who understands Arlington Heights Mayor Court may be able to argue for a continuance.

Only one continuance will be given without appearing in court, however, and all subsequent requested must be made on the record in court.

Payment Plans

Often times, individuals allow their traffic citations to pile up and ultimately cause enhanced consequences than those originally set. In Arlington Heights Mayor Court, an individual may be able to request a payment plan. Those who require a plan must appear in court and make a formal request.

Posting Bonds

If an alleged offender misses a required court appearance without timely requesting a continuance, then the Mayor court may issue a warrant for the offender’s arrest. The individual will then need to post a bond in order to receive a new court date. The bond amount will be determined by the Mayor court judge.

Cases That Are Not Heard in Mayor Court

Ohio and one other state are the only states in the U.S. that allow mayor’s courts and even then, they are limited in scope.  Mayor’s courts in Ohio cannot hear cases involving domestic violence, assault, kidnapping, aggravated trespass, violation of protection orders, and similar crimes.

Moreover, if a defendant is required to appear in Mayor’s Court and he or she requests a jury trial, then the case must be transferred to Arlington Heights Municipal Court. If the alleged offender is unhappy with the disposition of a case in mayor’s court, then he or she has the right to appeal to the Arlington Heights Municipal Court as well.
