have just been issued a traffic or ordinance citation. On the citation,
a date to appear in this court is listed. Pursuant to Wisconsin Law,
this date is set to give you the opportunity to enter the plea you
desire. You may seek legal counsel at your own expense or you may
appear and enter your own plea of either Guity, No Contest or
Not Guilty to the charge. If you plea GUILTY, the Court will
find you guilty and assess a penalty according to law. If you
plead NO CONTEST, the Court will treat the plea the same as a
plea of guilty. By pleading no contest, you will be admitting
to the violation but will not be admitting your civil liability,
if any, should a civil case be pending against you such as an
injury traffic accident. If you plea NOT GUILTY, your case will
be set for a pretrial conference at a later date.
The Officer may have
taken your driver's license. This is within Wisconsin Law and upon
direction of this Court. Upon your appearance in the Court or posting
a bond as set by the Judge, your license will be returned to you.
If you do not wish to appear in court, you may mail the bond by
check or money order, made payable to the GENOA CITY MUNICIPAL COURT.

The citation or receipt
that you have been issued will serve as your driver's license and will
be valid ONLY until the court date shown thereon. If you fail to post
bond, appear on the court date or enter a plea in writing, the Court
will either: ISSUE A WARRANT FOR YOUR ARREST or FIND YOU GUILTY BY DEFAULT.
If you are found Guilty, you will be given a date by which to pay the
ordered forfeiture. IF you fail to pay this amount by the date given,
YOUR DRIVER'S LICENSE MAY BE SUSPENDED or you may be COMMITTED TO THE
COUNTY JAIL for up to 90 days. If your driver's license is suspended,
