Municipal Court Appearances

After receiving a citation, you have fifteen (15) days to make an appearance in the Court.

Failure To Appear

Failure to appear or answer to the citation within this 15-day period may result in a warrant for your arrest being issued. A $50 fee is incurred on each citation when a warrant is issued. Although not required by law, the Court may notify you by mail when a warrant for your arrest has been issued. When issuing an arrest warrant for Class C misdemeanor offenses, the relevant information is added to the State's criminal database.

Mansfield Municipal Court of Record participates in the Omni Base Program with the Department of Public Safety. Because of this, renewal of your driver’s license may be denied if you have outstanding citations, warrants, or failure to appear offenses. Additional Omni Base program fees will be attached to each violation reported.
