PHOTO: The City of Victoria Municipal Court is in the process of mailing postcards about upcoming warrant resolution sessions to residents who have outstanding warrants.
Defendants with outstanding Municipal Court warrants may attend an upcoming e-court session to resolve their warrants without being arrested.
The virtual court sessions will be at 9 a.m. Feb. 25 and 1 p.m. Feb. 27. Defendants can attend by clicking the E-Court Appearance link at www.victoriatx.gov/municipalcourt. Defendants will need to join early to check in.
These sessions are part of Warrant Resolution Month, a yearly effort to allow those with outstanding warrants to speak with a judge or prosecutor to discuss resolution options. Community service or reduced fines may be available.
“My goal is to work with our residents and make sure they have a pathway to resolve these issues,” said Municipal Court Judge Vanessa Heinold.
The court will also hold its regularly scheduled in-person warrant resolution docket 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Feb. 24.
Residents who are unable to attend one of the upcoming court sessions are encouraged to contact the court at 361-485-3050 or firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss options for resolving their cases.
