Arrest Warrants and Capias Pro Fine Warrants are issued by the Municipal Court Judge. These are warrants for Class C Misdemeanor offenses which are punishable by fine only. The offenses range from traffic violations to penal code violations, and city ordinance violations.
Arrest warrants are issued for defendants that do not comply with making an initial appearance to answer the charge filed against them or those that have pled not guilty and do not appear for their trial.
Capias pro fine warrants are issued for defendants that have previously entered a plea, a judgment has been assessed and they are now in non-compliance of a court order.
A $50.00 warrant fee is added to the balance of each case when a warrant is issued.
