What happens when I appear on my court date?

You will be expected to go through a metal detector when you enter the courthouse. Weapons of any kind will not be permitted. You will then check in with the court clerk and she will give you a written copy of your Advisements of Rights. Please read this form carefully before signing it. You will be directed into the courtroom and the Judge will call each person to the podium individually to discuss your case.

Do I have to appear in court for traffic violations?

If a payable amount is listed on your citation, you are eligible to accept the automatic plea bargain and pay prior to your hearing date online at www.LittletonCOCourtPmts.com, by phone 303-339-0764, by mail, or the payment drop box outside the courthouse main entrance. If you do not want to accept the automatic plea bargain you can request a pre-trial conference with the prosecutor to discuss your case. Please contact the court to request a conference date. You can also appear in court on the listed date and time on your citation.

What if I move and have changed my phone number?

It is your responsibility to notify the Littleton Municipal Court of any changes to your address and/or phone number. You can update the court by email courtweb@littletongov.org or phone 303-795-3837.

What if I am unable to pay my fine?

You can contact the Littleton Municipal Court to set up payment arrangements by email courtweb@littletongov.org or phone 303-795-3837.

Should I accept the plea bargain that is being offered or go to trial?

The Clerks or the Prosecutor are not allowed to give you legal advice. If you would like to have an attorney present with you that is fine. If you need time to hire an attorney, you can ask the court for a continuance to get an attorney and appear at a later date.

If I want to go to trial, when will it be set?

Trials are usually set 45-90 days from the date of your first appearance hearing (arraignment). You will be given a setting sheet which you must sign and date confirming the trial date. If you are going to have witnesses for your trial, you can have the court clerk's office prepare the subpoenas for you; however, you will need to supply the names and addresses of your witnesses. It will be your responsibility to get those subpoenas personally served.

Can I request a jury trial?

Jury trials are only granted if the charge you have been given has jail time associated with it. All jury requests must be done in writing accompanied by a jury fee of $25. These requests must be filed with the court within 21 days from the date of your not guilty plea. You have the right to be tried within ninety (91) days of your plea unless a delay was granted by the Judge.

Can I get an attorney appointed to represent me in court?

You will need to contact the Littleton Municipal Court to obtain the forms needed to have an attorney appointed. The Judge will review this form to determine if you are eligible for a court-appointed attorney. Determination for granting a court-appointed attorney depends on two factors. The first factor is whether or not the Prosecuting attorney is seeking jail. If the Prosecuting attorney is not seeking jail time, an attorney will not be appointed. The second determining factor is whether or not the defendant meets the state indigency guidelines. If it is determined that a defendant is not indigent, a court appointed attorney will not be granted.

I would like to speak to the municipal prosecutor about my case. How do I do that?
