ARREST

If a person is arrested on a City of Laredo Class C Misdemeanor warrant (Click here for more information on warrants), he or she has the option to either post a bond or pay the fine. The following information applies if you are arrested on a Laredo warrant.

Posting a Bond

The Judge will accept the following types of bonds in order to be release a person from jail.

Cash Bond

A cash bond is usually for the amount equal to the fine and warrant fees. This money must be paid in the form of cash, cashiers check, or money order. You will receive a receipt for your payment and a copy of the bond, which will indicate a court date.

You will be requested to enter into a plea of "Nolo Contendere" or "No Contest." By entering into this plea, you are giving the Judge permission to take the bond money and apply it to the fine in event you do not appear on your court date. After your hearing, the judge will allow you credit for time spent in jail and order the Clerks' office to process any refund amount due. NOTE: You are not required to enter into the above plea. You have right to appear in court and request any available option you wish for disposing of the charge.

In all cases where a bond is posted, please keep your copy of all documents.

You have a responsibility to make sure that your address is kept current with the court. If you are unable to come to court on the date given, you must make a written request or come in person to request a new court date. Please bring paperwork related to your case when you visit the court for a new date.
