Municipal Court announces new Saturday open court session, other February dates
The City of Victoria Municipal Court has scheduled three open court dates for February to give residents with past-due citations or outstanding warrants a chance to resolve their cases without being arrested for City warrants.
The open court dockets for February will be 5:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 10; 1 p.m. Monday, Feb. 24; and 9 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 29. The court is offering one open court session on a Saturday so that more residents will have the opportunity to be seen by a judge.
Residents must arrive before the court session begins to check in. Registrations will be closed once the court reaches capacity. Wait times may last 2-4 hours depending on the order of registration.
Defendants will not be arrested for City of Victoria Municipal Court warrants during these open court dates. If there is a judicial finding of inability to pay, the fines may be reduced or waived, or community service options may be offered.
For more information, visit the Municipal Court at 107 W. Juan Linn Street or call 361-485-3050.
