Municipal Court - Outside 2 with Marshalls car


Class C Misdemeanor offenses are punished by fine only.  However, a municipal court may issue two types of arrest warrants when defendants fail to appear, fail to dispose of their citations, or fail to satisfy a judgment.  When a warrant is issued, the fine applicable to the Class C citation forming the basis of the warrant is set to the maximum allowed by law, an additional $50.00 warrant fee is added, and an additional $10 OmniBase fee.  Both types of warrants, described below, may be served anywhere in the state of Texas by a peace officer.  

Warrant of Arrest

This type of warrant is issued by the court when an individual does not appear in Court on or before the appearance date that is on the citation or summons.  When you were issued the citation, you signed the bottom of it, promising to appear in court on or before a certain date and time, approximately 30 days after the date of the citation.  If you fail to appear before the Court as required, the Court will begin processing the file for the issuance of a Warrant of Arrest.  

Capias Pro Fine Warrant

The Capias Pro Fine warrant is issued by the Court when an individual fails to satisfy a judgment according to its terms.  For example. If you were on a payment plan and you failed to make a payment when due, then a Capias Pro Fine warrant can be issued for your arrest.  The Capias fee of $50 can be charged to you as additional court costs.

If you are arrested on either warrant, your options are to either make arrangements with the Municipal Court to address your citation or judgment or be booked in the Kerr County Jail and be arraigned by the Magistrate within 24 hours.

Warrant Roundups

The Kerrville Municipal Court maintains a list of individuals with active warrant(s).  This list is current as of the time of posting each month.  The Court undertakes period roundups to clear the outstanding warrants.  These roundups include local law enforcement, and the City Marshal.  The City Marshal also has a license plate reader attached to his vehicle in order to automatically identify any outstanding warrants while he is carrying out his other duties around the City.

The active Warrant Listing is updated monthly.  If you see your name on this list and feel that it is in error or would like to resolve your issues and have the warrant withdrawn, please contact the Kerrville Municipal Court at (830) 257-2388.


If you have an active warrant with the City of Kerrville Municipal Court, please contact the Court at (830) 257-2388 to find out what options are available to you to clear your warrant, including those below.

Paying a Warrant

You may pay an active warrant using the online payment system.  Please understand that you remain subject to arrest until the Court has processed your payment and recalled the warrant.  If any payment is made electronically after 5:00 p.m., the Municipal Court will not process it until the next business day.

Appear in Open Court

To ensure the immediate recall of a warrant, appear in person before the judge to have your warrant withdrawn and see what options are available to you.  

Visit the Court

Even if the Court is not hearing cases, you may appear at the Court to speak with the Court Clerks about your outstanding warrants any time during regular business hours Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  The Court has a policy that you will not be arrested if you voluntarily come to court.  Therefore, there is no reason not to come in and visit with the Court about your citation, even if there is an active warrant for your arrest.
