Court Ordered community service work means that you must volunteer to work the required number of hours for a governmental, not-for-profit, or charitable organization. Examples: School district, park district, police agency, church or religious organization, hospital, nursing home, Red Cross, or Salvation Army. This community service work can be performed in or near the area or community in which you reside. For example, the Crete Lions Club
will accept Court Ordered community service.
Written proof of compliance on the organization's letterhead must be brought back to Court with you. The letter must state what work you did and the number of hours and dates that you worked. This letter must also be signed by an official or responsible supervisor from the organization with a day time phone number.
Your strict compliance with the Order of the Court is an absolute necessity.
Your failure to comply with the Court's Order could subject you to more severe penalties including being jailed for contempt of Court.
