Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
Good afternoon Lawrence,
I see you are asking the same question again. While most states have no pre-payment of a deposit obligation if you want to contest a ticket, some states do and while I didn't specifically find anything for Dunn County, I did find information from another WI county. And because these issues tend to be uniform throughout the state, it is my opinion that yes you do have to pay the deposit before court. Here is a link to the site I mentioned: http://www.waukeshacounty.gov/CourtsFAQ.aspx?SetupMetaId=22882&faq=288&hdr=25210
Now, if your citation requires that you appear at a hearing, then you do not have to pay the deposit and you can simply show up at the hearing.
This seems like a very crucial matter for you, and your questions and issues suggest that an in-depth conversation might best suit your needs. If you are interested, for a very nominal charge I can offer you a private phone conference as opposed to continuing in this question and answer thread which is searchable and viewable by the public.If I have already provided you with the information you asked for, would you please now rate my service to you so I can be compensated for assisting you?Thanks in advance,Doug
