Oneonta City Court

May I Enter A Plea in Writing?

In some instances, the Court may allow a defendant to enter a plea of guilty in writing.

Requests must be submitted in writing and state the reason you are requesting permission to plead guilty in writing. Your request must include a current mailing address and be received prior to your scheduled Court date.

The Court will review your request and notify you in writing if your request is granted or denied.

If it is denied, you will be required to appear in Court.

As a general rule, the Court does not accept written guilty pleas to Misdemeanors and certain violation level offenses.

Please refer to the traffic section for information regarding pleas by mail on tickets.
