SCLIRLJ 2.6 (b) MITIGATION HEARINGS BY MAIL In conformity with IRLJ 2.6, this court exercises its local option to allow mitigation by written document. A person who has been cited for a civil or traffic infraction may request to mitigate the infraction by mail. Upon receipt of the request for a mitigation hearing, forms for a written statement in mitigation will be sent to the cited person. The person should complete the form and return it to the court. Upon receipt of the completed forms by return mail, the Judge will review the citation and the written statement in mitigation. Upon reaching a decision, the court will then notify the person of the Judge's determination. The person then must remit any amount set by the Judge. If the amount set by the Judge is not paid by the specified date the failure to respond fee will be added and the matter will be turned over to a collection agency. If the citation is a traffic infraction, the Department of Licensing will be notified if the person fails to respond or to pay. This court does not accept written statements for contested infractions. This court does not accept written statements submitted by e-mail for mitigation or contested civil or traffic infractions.
