The annual Warrant Round-Up begins March 1 and agencies across the State will be working to locate persons with outstanding arrest warrants.

The Trophy Club Municipal Court is offering an amnesty program from February 17, 2014 through February 28, 2014. During the amnesty period, Defendants will not be arrested when appearing at the Court for the purpose of resolving their cases.  Persons who resolve outstanding warrants within the amnesty period will be offered two options:

•    The person may enter a plea of guilty or no contest and pay outstanding fines in full.  This option will result in the violation being reported to the State as a conviction on his or her driving record.  If this option is elected, all outstanding charges for Failure to Appear (FTA) charges will be dismissed.

•    The person may enter a plea of guilty or no contest and request deferred disposition to prevent the violation from being reported as a conviction on his or her driving record.  For this option, the person must pay all deferral fees in full, must enter a plea of guilty or no contest for all outstanding Failure to Appear charges, and must pay all associated fines.

--- Scam Alert ---

Multiple reports indicate that people are receiving phone calls from someone claiming to be a law firm, attorney, or using the name of the City’s warrant officer, but identifying himself as a deputy from Denton County, and advising the resident that they need to pay their citation or a warrant will be issued.  If you or someone you know is contacted regarding a warrant, the caller should refer you to the Trophy Club Municipal Court Office to handle the warrant.  All payments must be made to the Trophy Club Municipal Court at 100 Municipal Drive, or through the Town’s website at www.trophyclub.org. Any other requests for payment should be considered a scam and reported to the Trophy Club Police Department Non-Emergency number: 972-434-5500.
