Individuals with outstanding traffic infractions and low-level misdemeanors may be eligible to perform community service instead of jail time and/or fines.

Community Plea is a joint collaboration with Inland Empire Concerned African American Churches (IECAAC), San Bernardino County Public Defender’s Office, San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office, and San Bernardino County Superior Courts. 

Community Plea provides an avenue for those citizens who have had their driving privileges suspended because of an inability to pay fines and/or those who are unable to obtain a valid licence until a fine is paid in full. Community Plea assists those with the inability to pay by converting outstanding fines on traffic citations to community service.

To determine whether you qualify, please contact the Public Defender’s Office at the location where the ticket is assigned or a pastor from IECAAC (Inland Empire Concerned African American Churches).
