Currently, there is no statewide law authorizing a magistrate or judge of a municipal court to assess a warrant recall fee against a defendant in order to recall a failure to appear warrant
This bill would allow magistrates and judges of a municipal court to assess such a warrant recall fee of $100 to be paid when the warrant is recalled
This bill would provide that the proceeds of the fee would be deposited in the municipal corrections fund
Relating to the operation of municipal courts; to provide for a failure to appear warrant recall fee and to allow a magistrate or judge of a municipal court to recall under certain conditions a failure to appear warrant.
