What happens if I lose in court?

You will be ordered to pay a fine and court assessments (costs). The fine is set by the judge and may be more or less than that offered as a settlement prior to the trial. The Town’s and court’s records will also reflect that you received an ordinance violation conviction. If you are found guilty of unlawful consumption of alcohol or unlawful possession of alcohol, your driver's license will be suspended by the State of Illinois.
