New Plea by Mail Form Released by AOC

On September 1, 2007, the Supreme Court promulgated amendments to the Part VII Rules of Court. Two of these Rules, R 7:12-3 and R 7:6-3 now permit pleas of guilty by mail in many instances for both traffic/parking offenses and criminal matters in municipal court such as disorderly persons’ offenses and ordinance violations. A person may also enter a plea of not guilty and submit a defense to most traffic and parking offenses that do not require a suspension of driving privileges upon a finding of guilty.

In conjunction with the new Rules, the Administrative Office of the Courts has released the form that must be used in these “plea by mail” cases.
