Online Payments

The Second Judicial District Department of Correctional Services, is currently using an online payment service from MuniciPAY. It is a very simple process - if you have ever purchased anything online, you will be able to pay your fees on our payment site. You will need to know your ICON Number to look up and pay your Second District fees. You will also be able to view and pay any outstanding fees you may have from any of the other seven districts. On the payment site, you will see a total of all of the fees you still owe to any of the Districts - for example, you will see 2nd Judicial District Fee $300.00. You will not see all of the individual fee types if you have group fees or other outstanding fees beyond your Supervision Fee. The payment site will show Iowa Judicial Districts in the title heading, but you will be able to pay your 2nd District fees, as this is a statewide payment system.

When you make an online payment, if you have more than one Supervision Fee to pay, the most recent Supervision Fee will be paid first and then the next oldest and so on. After the Supervision Fees are paid in full, payments will then be applied to the other fees in order of newest to oldest. ** Also note, when you make a payment the new balance owed will not show up on the payment site until the next morning. The balances are adjusted nightly. By the following morning, you should see a new balance. Also, if you are just signing up for supervision, or for any of our treatment programs, your fee won't be on the payment site until the next day after it is entered into our Fees System and uploaded to the payment site in the middle of the night.

** There is a 2.65% or a minimum of a $3.00 service fee charged by MuniciPAY for using this online service. That service charge will show up on your card statement separately from the fee payment and will show MuniciPAY as the company who was paid.

You can still pay by any of the other methods of payment that we accept now. Only credit and debit card purchases have the service charge. You can still pay by cash, money order, Cashier's check, or personal check in one of our office locations or by money order, Cashier's check or personal check by mail to 2nd Judicial District, 111 Sherman Avenue, Ames, IA 50010.
