Pursuant Supreme Court Rule 37.04, all requests for recommendation for an alternative disposition of any charge must be sent directly to the prosecutor’s office henceforward the municipal court will not process any requests for recommendations.

Any other relevant documentation (i.e. proof of insurance, reinstatement, restitution, etc.) needs to be provided to the Prosecutor’s Office.

Request for Discovery: An attorney requesting discovery may include this request along with the letter requesting a recommendation. You may pick up reports from the Prosecutor’s office or the requests will be mailed to you if you provide a sufficiently sized, self-addressed envelope with the proper postage affixed. Discovery is governed in accordance with Supreme Court Rule 37.54. All other requests for discovery must be presented to the court in writing with a copy of such request provided to the Prosecutor.

Prosecuting Attorney’s Recommendation – No Court Appearance Required: If the matter does not require a court appearance to accept the recommendation and is payable outside of court, the defendant and attorney must sign the recommendation plea form. The signed recommendation plea form can be mailed in with payment.
