What happens if I plead guilty in court?

If you plead guilty in court, the judge will:

  • Confirm that your plead is voluntary
  • Determine if there are facts to support the charges and the guilty pleas
  • Make a finding and impose a sentence

If you plead guilty or are found guilty in court, the penalties listed on the Violations Bureau Schedule do not apply.
