Listed below is information taken from the Fairborn Municipal Court website regarding on-line payments.  If you have any questions about this process, or you find yourself facing an OVI charge in the Fairborn Municipal Court, please contact Charles M. Rowland II at (937) 318-1384 or 1-888-769-5263 [888-ROWLAND].

Payment of Citation Without Court Appearance (Waivers)

Ohio law allows certain traffic citations to be resolved by a Traffic Violations Bureau instead of appearing in Court. If your citation qualifies, payment can be made either in person, by mail, or now online, as long as it is received by the Clerk’s office prior to the Court date and time which can be found on the bottom of your citation or by accessing the record search information. You must pay the full amount, NO partial payment can be accepted. Court records are updated every 24 hours, so if you forgot or missed your court date, you should check the status after that time. You may still qualify to pay. If you do not qualify for payment, you MUST appear in person at the Clerk’s office as a warrant has already been issued for your arrest and/or notification to the Bureau of Motor Vehicles of a license forfeiture and/or block along with additional fees.

Multiple Violations on Citation(s)

The result of your search will display all cases relevant to that search. Tickets can contain up to seven (7) separate charges. If you are paying to waive a court appearance, make sure you are paying all the charges. Multiple cases per ticket are listed with letters after the case number (ex. TRD10000001A, TRD1000001B, TRD1000001C, etc.).

Proof of Insurance

Proof of insurance is a State of Ohio requirement. To verify that you showed proof of insurance to the Officer at the time of the offense, click the case number(s) on the list of case numbers matching your search criteria to see detailed information for the case. If you showed proof of insurance at the time of the offense (indicated as “Proof of Ins.?: Shown”), then you have complied with the State of Ohio requirements, no further action on your behalf is required. If you did not show proof of insurance at the time of the offense (indicated as “Proof of Ins.?: Not Shown”), the Court is required to notify the State of Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles who in turn will mail you a request for proof of insurance. Failure to comply will result in a suspension of your driving privileges. DO NOT SEND PROOF OF INSURANCE TO THE COURT AFTER PAYMENT.

Citations That Do Not Qualify

If a citation includes any mandatory offense, it is NOT payable online and a Court appearance is required. What follows is a list of offenses that cannot be paid online requiring a Court appearance:

  • Any felony or indictable offense
  • Operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol or drugs of abuse, or permitting another to do so
  • Leaving the scene of an accident
  • Driving under suspension or without a license except for expired license of less than six (6) months
  • Third moving violation within 12 months
  • Eluding/fleeing a police officer
  • Drag racing
  • Physical control
  • Illegal license plates
  • Any speed clocked at 100 MPH or more
  • Passing a school bus
  • Some railroad crossing violations
  • Reckless operation of a motor vehicle
  • Overload violations 

Payment of Citation After Court Appearance

Payment of Fines/Costs are also accepted by the Clerk’s Office as long as it is received prior to your scheduled court date. If you missed the date, you MUSTappear in person at the Clerk’s Office as a warrant may have been issued for your arrest and/or notification to the Bureau of Motor Vehicles of a license forfeiture and/or block along with additional fees.

Warren County Courts Consider Consolidation

April 18th, 2013

warrenIn a recent Dayton Daily News article, the prospect of merging the Warren County Court into the Franklin Municipal Court and the Lebanon Municipal Court was brought before the Warren County Commissioners.  At the request of Franklin Municipal Court Judge Rupert Ruppert and Lebanon Municipal Court Judge Mark Brogen, the Warren County Commission has contracted the National Center for State Courts to study whether the county court should be consolidated with the municipal courts in Franklin and Lebanon. The county agreed to pay the NCSC $25,992 to study the consolidation, and the report is due at the end of May or early June.  A consolidation of the part-time courts into full-time courts would allow the judges to begin specialized dockets and offer other meaningful services to defendants.  In addition, consolidation of part-time courts was a goal for former Chief Justice Thomas Moyer.  His agenda has been furthered under current Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor.  In the article, she is quoted as saying, “I intend to follow the lead of former Chief Justice Thomas J. Moyer by strongly encouraging local judges and legislative officials to examine the use of part-time judges and advocating for them to consolidate such positions where possible, for the greater purpose of creating a full-time judiciary throughout the state.”  Below is the current jurisdiction of the various courts serving Warren County.
