Criminal Tickets

In criminal cases, the city must prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt. All defendants have the right to an attorney at all hearings. If the defendant cannot afford to hire an attorney, the court may appoint a public defender. The defendant must appear at all scheduled hearings or a warrant will be issued for arrest.
  1. Arraignment

    In an arraignment hearing, the person charged with a crime appears before a judge for the first time.

  2. My Future Home

    At your arraignment hearing, you will be asked to enter a plea.

  3. Review Hearings

    If you were required to undergo treatment and/or any other class or condition after your trial, you may be required to attend a preliminary hearing for the court to review your treatment up to that point.

  4. Warrants

    If you fail to appear and/or fail to comply with conditions of a sentence, the court may issue a warrant for your arrest.
