E-Business in the Illinois Judiciary - DeKalb County Circuit Court

Plead Guilty and Pay Traffic Ticket from DeKalb County

On March 20, 2013, DeKalb County was approved to begin accepting electronic guilty pleas from offenders in minor traffic and conservation offenses under Supreme Court Rule 529, and in accordance with Supreme Court Order M.R. 18368 and the revised Standards for Accepting Electronic Pleas of Guilty.


Electronic Transfer of Record on Appeal to Second District Appellate Court

On May 31, 2012, the Illinois Supreme Court filed M.R. 18368, which expanded a pilot project that authorized the electronic transfer of the record on appeal originating in Ogle and DuPage Counties to the Second District Appellate Court to include the record on appeal originating in McHenry and DeKalb Counties.

Under the pilot project, one official record pursuant to Supreme Court rules will remain but a mirror record will be produced electronically with identical pagination. The accessible electronic record will include transcripts of the trial and associated hearings, motions, other pleadings and documents. It will exclude exhibits such as photos and physical evidence such as weapons, clothing and the like. The pilot will allow attorneys, parties and appellate justices to electronically view, access and work from the official record of cases on appeal. The pilot makes the physical transfer of the record unnecessary, removes the cost of repeatedly transporting the record back and forth from the Appellate Clerk's office.
