Pleas in Absentia

A Plea in Absentia is a common way to resolve misdemeanor cases.   But beware of the following pitfalls:

  1.  Always make sure you report to probation as soon as the plea is finalized.
  2. Check in with the Clerk of Court on ANY payments that need to be made.
  3. Obtain a signed copy of the plea from your lawyer.   Preferably the recorded copy.
