Receiving a Ticket
If you receive a Municipal ticket and wish to plea bargain, please Email Lou Ann Moudy the City Attorney.
In particular, if you were cited for no driver’s license or no current tag, a reduced charge and fine is possible if, and only if, you buy the license, or car tag and bring your proof to City Hall to be reviewed. In addition, if you received a ticket for no insurance or no proof of insurance in your possession and if you actually had insurance at the time the ticket was issued, you may also bring your verification to City Hall to be confirmed.
These items must be received no later than the Monday prior to your court date or you will be required to present them to the Judge at your scheduled court appearance.
Failure to Pay
Failure to pay the ticket or appear in court and enter a plea will result in a Bench Warrant. We use the Okmulgee County Criminal Justice Authority for jail services. The maximum fine for some repeat offenses is $750 plus City and State costs, per offense, as ordered by the Judge. The maximum fine on most other charges is $500 plus City and State costs, per offense.
