Underage Alcohol Violations-Options

Chetek Municipal Court offers the option for first time offenders only to attend a 12 hour course designed to reduce risk for future problems and focus on three measurable behavioral prevention goals.  When this course is successfully completed, there will be no suspension of your driving privileges and the fine will be reduced to just $40.00

Worthless Checks

Appearances for issuing worthless checks are mandatory. Paying the restitution for the worthless check, and any fees incurred by the victim, BEFORE your court appearance, provides the possibility of a reduction of the fine to just $50.00 for First Offense violations only.

Restitution must be paid at the Chetek Police Department by cash or money order.
