Can I plead "guilty" or "not guilty" by mail?
While neither New York law nor the City Code explicitly provide for entering a plea by mail for these types of offenses, the court does have procedures that they may permit a defendant to use to enter a plea by mail under certain circumstances. Information about the court may be found at the Ithaca City Court website.
