If the terms and conditions are successfully met at the end of the agreement, the plea will be withdrawn, charge will be dismissed and the case will be closed.

Every effort is made to contact you through your current address that is written on the citation (which is the address from the Utah Driver License Division). It is not the responsibility of the Court to send notice to any other address.

Delinquent Fees

 A delinquent fee of $125 is added to citations that are past due. A delinquent citation is also subject to a warrant being issued against the defendant and the driver’s license being suspended.If the Courtesy Bail Notice is returned due to non-delivery based on a bad address, the citation may become delinquent.
