Municipal Court

Requesting Deferred Disposition

What is Deferred Disposition?

Deferred Disposition is a suspended sentence. On your plea of guilty or no contest, the court will defer a finding of guilt, assess Court costs, and will require you to comply with certain conditions. If you successfully comply with the terms, your case will be dismissed. If you fail to comply with the terms, a judgment will be imposed, a conviction will be reported to DPS (Texas Department of Public Safety) and a Capias Pro fine may be issued.

How do I Request Deferred Disposition?

You may request Deferred Disposition on or before your first court date in person, or by e-mail.   If the offense is a traffic offense classified as a moving violation and  the defendant is younger than 25 years of age, then the judge shall require as a condition of deferred disposition that the defendant complete a driver safety course.

Capias Pro Fine Warrants

If you do not pay your fine and costs within thirty (30) days following entry of judgment or within the time allowed by the court in an Extension/Installment Agreement, a Capias Pro Fine Warrant for your arrest will be issued. For each offense for which a Capias Pro Fine Warrant has been issued, an additional $50 will be added to the amount that you owe. Your failure to pay and the issuance of the warrant for your arrest will be reported to the Texas Department of Public Safety for Denial of Driver License Renewal and a $30.00 fee may be added. Under applicable law you will be subject to immediate arrest and incarceration.
