E-Business in the Illinois Judiciary - LaSalle County Circuit Court

Electronic Guilty Pleas

On February 10, 2016, LaSalle County was approved to begin accepting electronic guilty pleas from offenders in minor traffic and conservation offenses under Supreme Court Rule 529, and in accordance with Supreme Court Order M.R. 18368 and the revised Standards for Accepting Electronic Pleas of Guilty.


E-Citation Program

On December 12, 2014, LaSalle County was approved by the Conference of Chief Circuit Judges to operate an e-Citation program.


Electronic Transfer of Record on Appeal to Third District Appellate Court

On September 16, 2015, the Illinois Supreme Court filed Order M.R. 18368, which expanded a pilot project that authorized the electronic transfer of the record on appeal originating in Rock Island and Will Counties to the Third District Appellate Court to include the record on appeal originating in LaSalle County.

Under the pilot project, one official record pursuant to Supreme Court rules will remain but a mirror record will be produced electronically with identical pagination. The accessible electronic record will include transcripts of the trial and associated hearings, motions, other pleadings and documents. It will exclude exhibits such as photos and physical evidence such as weapons, clothing and the like. The pilot will allow attorneys, parties and appellate justices to electronically view, access and work from the official record of cases on appeal. The pilot makes the physical transfer of the record unnecessary, removes the cost of repeatedly transporting the record back and forth from the Appellate Clerk's office.
