Q: My son is 18 and received a ticket for operating a motor vehicle while using an electronic communication device.
He would like to ask for court supervision but we are not sure if he should pay the fine and plead guilty before appearing in court or should he pay the fine on the day he appears in court and asks for court supervision?
A: appear on the court date and request supervision and pay the fine after. (unless it's a county that allows supervision by mail)
