STMCLIR 1.5 REQUIREMENTS FOR PAYMENT FOLLOWING INFRACTION HEARINGS 1. If a defendant who has been charged with a traffic or other infraction filed with the SeaTac Municipal Court is found to have committed that infraction, absent extenuating circumstances, the defendant shall make payment in full of the amount of the penalty at the time of the hearing in which the defendant was found to have committed the infraction. 2. Time payments on infractions will be permitted only upon a showing of exceptional and exigent circumstances in court, at the time of the hearing on the contested infraction. The decision by the judge to authorize time payments in infraction cases shall be subject to the conditions set at the time of the order authorizing time payments. 3. Failure to make payment on the penalties for committed infractions shall be enforceable pursuant to otherwise applicable court rule, state law or administrative code regulations. Notice Pursuant to SeaTac Local Court Rule 11, the SeaTac Municipal Court will not permit time payments following infraction hearings. Therefore, if a monetary penalty is imposed by the Judge, it will be necessary for you to be prepared to pay the penalty in full immediately following the conviction. Failure to pay the penalty amount immediately following the hearing will result in an additional $47.00 penalty and a suspension of your driver's license by the Department of Licensing. [Former Rule 11 adopted September 15, 1994; amended and renumbered as STMCLIR 1.5 effective September 1, 2003]
