Some lower lever traffic charges may be eligible to be paid online through the Plead and Pay option in lieu of appearing in court. Examples of those charges would be seat belt tickets, lower speeding charges, failure to obey traffic control device, etc. To determine if your ticket is eligible to be paid through Plead and Pay, you can search on case.net by Litigant Name Search. In the field titled “Search For Cases In”, you would select Lawrence County – 39th Judicial Circuit from the drop down menu. You would then enter your name and select “find”. When the case is retrieved, you would select the Plead and Pay option and follow the steps as outlined. Those steps include entering your guilty plea to the charge(s) by electronically signing a Waiver of Appearance and Guilty Plea form. You would then proceed to pay the fines and costs with a debit or credit card, or enter your bank information if you prefer to pay by electronic check. Once this process is completed, the hearing date shown on the ticket will be canceled, and the case will be completed. This feature is only available up to the day the court hearing is scheduled. Should you have questions or require assistance, you can call our office at 417-466-2471 (option #2).
If you have a higher charge that is not eligible to be paid through the Plead and Pay system, that option will not be available for selection when you find your case on case.net. In that event, you will need to appear in court on the date scheduled.
