Level 7:  Post Dispositional Information

A Disposition is the consequence imposed by the Judge upon an admission or a finding of guilt. A disposition can come in many forms including:

  1. Fines
  2. Work hours & Community Service hours  (The difference is that work hours can be converted to a fine but Community Service hours are ordered on some charges as mandatory work hours and may not be converted.)
  3. Counseling or classes specific to the type of problems presented
  4. Suspended Driver's License
  5. Probation:  There are several levels of supervision available
  6. Youth Corrections or DCFS custody
  7. Acquittal or dismissal of charges
  8. Home Detention, Regular Detention or Jail time

If fines, work hours, and/or counseling are ordered, then a due date will be set for completion of that order.  If you are unable to meet that deadline, contact the court to arrange to fill out a form requesting an extension of time.

Overdue Accounts
If the deadline has already passed, you will receive a Notice of Overdue Account and if that is not resolved within 10 days, an Order to Show Cause will be issued and you will be required to attend a court hearing to explain why you have not complied with the Court's order.

Possible consequences may be:

  1. Additional time allowed for good cause
  2. Additional fines/hours
  3. Suspension of Driving Privileges
  4. Detention or Jail time

If you are unable to comply with the court's order within the time allotted, contact the court to fill out an extension request.   If the due date has already passed, contact the court and discuss the situation with the Collections Clerk.
