REQUEST FOR RECOMMENDATION
We are no longer using LawSource for recommendations. Cases entered on that site will not be accepted.
Please be advised that the Prosecutor’s Office is NOT part of the Municipal Court. All requests for recommendations MUST be submitted to the Office of the Municipal Prosecutor separately from any court documentation. The Court will not forward any requests for recommendation.
Mailed requests should include a self-addressed stamped envelope, and can be sent to the City of Webster Groves Prosecuting Attorney, #4 E Lockwood Ave, Webster Groves, MO 63119. Email requests can be sent to Carol McClure, Prosecuting Attorney’s Assistant, at email@example.com. Phone and Facsimile requests will not be granted.
All requests should include:

- 5 year driving record (needed only for traffic matters).
- Proof of insurance, license, or registration as appropriate for the charges.

Acceptance of Recommendations:
The recommendation will indicate if a court appearance is required. Otherwise, recommendations may be accepted by counsel and defendant signing the recommendation form and mailing it to the court with payment in full by the date and time given. The Court will not be able to accept the recommendation and payment without signatures from BOTH the defendant and attorney.
No partial payments are allowed on recommendations. To obtain the recommendation, all fines and costs must be paid in full by the court date given.
Rescission of Recommendation:
The recommendation has not been accepted until all fines and costs are paid. If the defendant fails to pay all fines and costs by the due date, the recommendation will be rescinded and the original violation will then be pending against the defendant.
