Warrant resolution program begins this month

Posted

The Sealy Municipal Court, Austin County Justice of the Peace Precinct 3, and San Felipe Municipal Court will participate in a 2018 Warrant Resolution beginning Saturday, Feb. 24, and ending March 4.

This is the perfect time of year to resolve any outstanding warrants for your arrest. Each local agency encourages individuals to contact the appropriate court immediately in regards to any outstanding business with the court.

Under Texas Law, individuals that appear before a court and make a good faith effort to resolve their outstanding Class C warrants are afforded safe harbor and not subject to arrest. Additionally, if a judgment is rendered against an individual who is unable to pay the judgment, the individual may request a judge to assess their ability to pay and offer alternative means to satisfy the judgment.

It is your responsibility to contact the court and make the necessary arrangements to process the appropriate option for your individual case. Individuals with warrants are encouraged to contact the court(s) that issued the warrants to resolve their cases voluntarily before they are compelled to appear by arrest.
