If a Defendant is 16 years of age or younger and was issued a traffic citation, or 17 years of age or younger and was issued an alcohol or tobacco citation, the Defendant’s parent/guardian will be required to appear in court before the Municipal Judge with the juvenile. Appropriate attire is required in the courtroom. No shorts, miniskirts, hats, t-shirts, or tank tops of any kind are permitted.
A child and parent required to appear before the Court have an obligation to provide the Court in writing with the current address and residence of the child. The obligation does not end when the child reaches age 17. Within one week of changing residence, the child or parent shall notify the Court of the new address. A violation of this subsection is a Class C misdemeanor and may result in arrest. The obligation to provide notice terminates on discharge and satisfaction of the judgment or final disposition not requiring a finding of guilt.
