Requesting a Continuance
If you cannot appear in court on the date listed on your citation, you must call 913.893.6231 or email the Court Clerk by the close of business on the Friday before your scheduled court date to request a continuance.
Continuances are not guaranteed. If you fail to appear for your scheduled court date and have not been granted a continuance, a warrant may be issued for your arrest.
At arraignment, you will appear in court and enter a plea for your charged violations. You can enter a plea of:
- Guilty – You admit to having committed the act charged. The judge will order a fine, jail time or other sentence.
- No Contest – You do not contest the city's charge. The judge will enter a verdict of guilty and order a fine, jail time or other sentence. A plea of no contest is not an admission of fault and cannot be used against you in a civil proceeding.
- Not Guilty – You deny guilt, which means the city must prove our charge. Your case will be set for trial or a pre-trial conference with the city prosecutor to see what options are available to you.
