Request for Negotiated Plea Offer for Traffic Tickets

If you would like to request a negotiated plea offer from the Champaign County State's Attorney's Office, please click on the link at the bottom of the page to fill out a form providing basic information about your citation and your driving history. Once you submit the form, it will be reviewed by an Assistant State's Attorney and you will receive a message from office staff communicating to you the terms of any such negotiated plea offer. Submission of this form does not guarantee that you will be offered a negotiated sentence.

Possible offers from the State's Attorney's office could include a disposition of court supervision or reducing your charge to a non-moving violation. The length of court supervision and amount of fine varies depending on your current charges and driving history.

Requests for negotiated plea offers must be submitted at least one week prior to the court date indicated on the bottom of the citation or the request will be denied.

Disclaimer

The Champaign County State's Attorney's Office makes no guarantees of negotiated offers on any case and offers no legal advice regarding your traffic matter, including how it may or may not affect your driving privileges or insurance premiums.

Negotiated plea offers will NOT be extended to those charged with misdemeanor offenses where a mandatory court date is required, with the exception of Class B Misdemeanor speeding cases (26-34 miles per hour over the speed limit.)

Multiple Tickets

If you received multiple tickets that include expired registration, expired license, or lack of insurance, as well as a ticket for which you are requesting a negotiated offer - YOU MUST SUBMIT valid proof of registration/license/insurance using the form below. A negotiated offer will not be extended to you unless you first show proof of this documentation.

  • Expired Registration

    If you were ticketed for expired registration and you now have proof of registration, please fill out the Proof of Current Registration, License and/or Insurance form below. Scan or take a picture of the your new registration document and attach it to the email that is generated when you submit the form.  Make sure the entire document is visible. It is likely, but not guaranteed, that your registration ticket will be dismissed.

  • Expired License

    If you were ticketed for an expired license and now have renewed your license, please fill out the Proof of Current Registration, License and/or Insurance form below. Submitting a copy of your license is not suggested. Simply check the appropriate box on the form and the State's Attorney's Office will verify proof of license with the Illinois Secretary of State. It is likely, but not guaranteed, that your expired license ticket will be dismissed.

  • Uninsured
    If you were ticketed for not having valid insurance and you have proof that you were covered by a liability insurance policy on the date of your ticket, please fill out the Proof of Current Registration, License and/or Insurance form below and submit a copy of your insurance card to our office. Scan or take a picture of the your insurance card and attach it to the email that is generated when you submit the form.  Make sure the entire document is visible. Once your proof of insurance is verified by the State's Attorney's Office, your ticket will be dismissed.

    If you obtained insurance after the date of your traffic stop, please bring a copy of your proof of insurance to your mandatory court appearance and produce it for the prosecutor in the Courtroom that day. If you have never been convicted of or received court supervision for driving uninsured in the past, Illinois law indicates that you will receive a disposition of court supervision with a fine of $100.00. Paperwork will be presented to the Judge on your court date and you will be given a signed copy.

Please submit proof of required documentation or information at least one week prior to the court date indicated on the bottom of the citation to assure that your ticket will be dismissed prior to your court date.
