So I get the court summons, now what do I do?
At this stage you have to go to court, there are no other options. When you appear before the judge he will ask if you are guilty or innocent of the charge and if the necessary corrective action has been taken. If the problem has been corrected you will most likely receive a fine plus court cost. If the problems still exists, you will probably receive a new court date with instructions from the judge to take care of the problem by the next court date and a range of fines wherein your penalty might be. If you don't appear in court as required, a warrant wlle be issued for your arrest.
