Understanding Your Interlaken Municipal Court Summons
Although a court appearance is required in criminal matters, this is not always the case with municipal violations. If you must appear in court, there will be a checkmark in the “court appearance required” box on your summons. If a court appearance is not mandated, you can choose to pay your fine, understanding that this is an automatic guilty plea. You can also choose to enter a not guilty plea and be heard in front of the judge. In the latter case, you must enter a not guilty plea with the Court Administrator at least 7 days prior to your court or payment date.
Careful consideration must be given to how you should plead. It is best to seek legal advice from an experienced Interlaken attorney to get a full understanding of your rights and options. Working with a lawyer may result in a reduction of your charges, helping you avoid damaging consequences such as suspension of driving privileges and jail time.
