Enter a Plea and Request Time to Pay
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the continued need for social distancing
the Overland Park Municipal Court is allowing defendants to enter a plea
and request additional time to pay fines in full.
You are eligible to enter a plea and request time to pay if there is a
scheduled fine on your citation.
If your citation says that an appearance is required, please call the
court clerk’s office at (913) 327-6800 to determine if you still might
be eligible for this program.
IF YOU HAVE AN ATTORNEY, PLEASE DO NOT FILL OUT THIS REQUEST.
CONTACT YOUR ATTORNEY DIRECTLY.
What does a Guilty plea mean?
Guilty means you admit to committing the act charged, that the act is unlawful, and that you have
no defense for the act. In most minor traffic cases, a guilty plea and fine will be accepted online
or through the mail.
What does a No Contest plea mean?
No Contest means you do not wish to contest the city's charge. Upon a plea of no contest, the judge
will enter a finding of guilty and fine. A plea of no contest is not an admission of fault and
cannot be used against you in a civil suit for damages.
If you do not want to enter a plea but would like to request a continuance
from the court please use the Defendant Motion to Continue
