The Trial

The Pre-Trial

When you enter a plea of not guilty, your case will be set on a pre-trial hearing docket. Pre-trial hearings are set as scheduling permits. You will be notified by mail of the Pre-Trial hearing date.

Your appearance at pre-trial is mandatory.

Trial Docket Schedule

Docket is available after the completion of Pre-Trials. There is no pre-trial docket at this time.

The Trial

A trial in Municipal Court is a fair, impartial, and public trial as in any other Court. Under Texas law, you can be brought to trial only after a sworn complaint is filed against you. A complaint is the document which alleges what act you are supposed to have committed and that the act is unlawful. You can be tried only for what is alleged in the complaint.

You must be on time and dress appropriately.
