Residents can now pay Forrest County Justice Court online

HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) - Motorists ticketed for traffic violations can now pay fines online to the Forrest County Justice Court.

The Web site allows users to pay minor traffic offenses and purchase renewal stickers for their license plates.

Sharon Thompson, the justice court clerk, says users also will pay a small processing fee for using the Web site.

Thompson says residents will be able to log back onto the Web site to check the status of their payment to ensure it was accepted by the county.

She says the site also contains a link that lists fines for the county's traffic violations.

Thompson says law officers have stickers informing violators how to access the Web site that they will affix to citations when they are issued.
