OLYMPIA - Have you ever received a traffic infraction that you agree that you committed, but wanted a court hearing in hopes of having your penalty mitigated or reduced- but you could not appear in court because of work or other reasons?-30-
If so, Thurston County District Court is now offering an alternative to your having to personally appear in court for your mitigation hearing.
By visiting the District Court web site you can now electronically submit a hearing request and a statement concerning your infraction to the Court. A District Court judge will review your submission and rule on your case with a response sent to you shortly thereafter via email.
To request an e-Mitigation Hearing or to view other District Court programs, please visit the Thurston County District Court website at http://www.co.thurston.wa.us/distcrt/.
