Ticket Information

If you receive a traffic infraction in the Town of Homer, please follow these instructions:

Mail your plea to the Homer Town Court at 4 Water Street, Homer NY 13077.

Section A is a Guilty Plea. If you make a guilty plea, the Judge will simply set your fine and send you notification through the mail of that fine and the New York State Mandated Surcharge if there is one. You will be given 30 days to pay.

Section B is a Not Guilty plea. If you make a Not Guilty Plea, you will be mailed instructions to write to the Assistant District Attorney (ADA) for a pre-trial conference and given an adjournment to do so. You will need to send the ADA a copy of your ticket, a letter of explanation, a copy of your driver abstract (obtained at the DMV for a $10 fee) and a self-addressed envelope. If any accident occurred, a copy of the accident report, together with a letter from your insurance company stating its intentions regarding any claims or potential claims should be included. The ADA will write back to you, possibly with an offer. If you accept the offer, sign that letter and mail it back the Court by the adjournment date given to you by the Court. If you do not accept the offer given, the case will be set for trial.

If you are charged with a Misdemeanor level crime or higher, you will need to appear in court on the date the officer provided for arraignment. A Plea sent through the mail cannot be accepted.
