You need to go to the Courthouse at the Clerk's office where the case was filed to request the documents. You would need certified copies of the Court documents. The Clerk's office would handle this for you at nominal cost. As for the excerpts of law dealing with the penalties, you can also ask the Clerk's office to print you out the penalties for the offense.
