ARREST :: WARRANTS OF ARREST

For "Class C Misdemeanor" offenses the initial punishment assessed does not include jail time. Most often a fine is assessed or the Judge may require a person to take a driving safety course or similar other task. When you sign the citation issued by the Police officer, you promise to appear in court. You may be arrested if you do not voluntarily come to court as you have promised. In addition, you may be arrested if you do not pay the fine assessed by the Court, which you promised to pay.

The Court issues two kinds of arrest warrants. First type of warrants are issued for:

  1. not appearing at the Court as promised.
  2. not taking care of original Class C citation.

A Warrant of Arrest is prepared on both the original charge and the failure to appear charge. If you are arrested, you may post a bond to be released from jail.

The second type of warrant is called a "Capias Pro-fine" warrant. This warrant is prepared for people failing to obey Judge’s order to pay fine on or before a certain date. In lieu of payment a person may serve jail time for the fine at a rate of $100 per day. When you have a "Capias Pro-fine" warrant, you do not have the option to post a bond. You can only pay the fine by giving the amount due in the form of cash, cashiers check, or money order, or by serving time in jail.
