Idaho Misdemeanor Criminal Rule 14. Disposition of Citations by Written Plea of Guilty - Limitations - Deferred Payment Agreements.

(a) Written Plea of Guilty. Subject to the limitations of subsection (b) of this rule, any person charged with a misdemeanor by a uniform citation or complaint may sign a written plea of guilty on the citation and pay the fine and court costs. The amount of the fine and court costs to be assessed for an offense under a written plea of guilty shall be the bail bond amount provided in Rule 13. Upon the entry of a written plea of guilty under this rule, the clerk shall enter a judgment of conviction and shall collect the payment of the fine and court costs or enter into a deferred payment agreement with the defendant as provided in Rule 8. If a defendant appears before a judge or magistrate, or if a judge or magistrate reviews the file of a defendant and finds that summary disposition under this rule is not appropriate, in either event the summary disposition under this Rule 14(a) shall not apply and the Court shall make disposition of the case. 

 

(b) Limitation on offenses for written plea of guilty. A written plea of guilty can be accepted under subsection (a) of this rule only if the required bail bond under Rule 13 does not exceed: 

   

(1)  $271.00 for a motor vehicle offense. 

 

(2)  $577.00 for offenses under I.C. Sections 49-432, 49-432(2)(a), 49-432(2)(b) and 63-2441.
