General Arraignments

General arraignments occur each morning, Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday at 9:00 a.m.. Defendants in custody at the detention facility will be seen by video for their arraignment at 7:30 a.m. 

At the arraignment each defendant will be advised of the charge against them and the maximum penalty, and will then be asked to enter a plea of Guilty, Not Guilty, or No Contest.  Upon pleas of No Contest or Guilty, the Judge will sentence the defendant. Misdemeanors carry a maximum possible penalty of $750.00, except enhanced offenses and alcohol related offenses (DUI's etc.) which may carry a maximum possible penalty of $750.00 and six months in jail, or both.A Not Guilty plea will require a trial scheduled for a later date. A bond will be set at that time to ensure the Defendant's appearance at trial. The bond may be applied to fines upon the verbal consent of the person posting the bond. If the bond is not applied, please call the court as to how to get the bond returned.If you wish to have a witness or an officer, you must subpoena them. You may receive a subpoena packet from the Court office or find them under the forms tab on this website to require your witnesses to appear in Court for the trial. If a payment plan is needed they can be either established at the window or at your hearing.

Bond Schedule

Bond Schedule 2024

All charges in the Municipal Court have a designated bond amount attached to the violation.  Each violation is listed in the bond schedule with the amount of the bond or a “must appear” notation.  Any charges not listed on this schedule are considered a “must appear.” 

If the “may forfeit bond in lieu of appearance” box is checked on the citation, the person has two options: 1. appear on the day and at the time specified on the citation; or 2. post bond at or prior to the court date and forfeit the same in lieu of appearance. 

A person to whom a citation has been issued must appear in court on the day and at the time specified in the citation unless the citing officer checks the box “may forfeit bond in lieu of appearance” on the citation.
