Your Ticket is a Legal Document
Your ticket is a legal document that charges you with a violation of the Municipal Ordinances of the City of Claremore. If you receive a ticket (PDF), you are required to take certain action.
You may either attend your scheduled court day to contest your ticket or pay your ticket before noon on your scheduled court date. If you have paid your ticket before noon on the day of your court date, you do not have to appear in Court.
Court Appearances If you choose to go to your scheduled court date, you must enter a plea of guilty, not guilty or no contest. If you choose to plead not guilty, you need to request a trial with the Judge.
If you do not show up for your scheduled court date, and have not already paid your fine, a bench warrant for Failure to Appear will be issued for your arrest. If you cannot pay your entire fine by the due date, you may appear before the Judge and ask for an extension on your Court date and set up a payment plan with him. He is the only person who can grant you a payment extension.
No Insurance Tickets If you received a ticket for No Insurance but did have insurance in effect at the time you received your ticket, simply bring proof of insurance along with the ticket to the Court Clerk’s Office at 104 South Muskogee between the hours of 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. and the ticket could be dismissed. If you bought insurance after the ticket you will still need to come to your scheduled court date.
If you still have questions about your ticket, you may call the Court Clerk’s Office at 918-341-1325 between the hours of 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., Monday - Friday. The staff cannot provide you legal advice, but they can assist with basic questions about your ticket.
