Houston Warrant Round-up
Be prepard for the next Houston Warrant Roundup. If you have
warrants, don't just pay the underlying tickets to avoid the warrant roundup. If you pay the underlying
charges on your ticket, you will be convicted of the charges. These convictions will go on your record and
could result in the suspension of your Texas Drivers License, higher insurance rates, expensive points and
surcharges under the Texas Driver Responsibility Program, or even the loss of employment.
You got into warrants by missing a court date
or being late for court. Just because you missed a court date or were late for court does not mean you owe
any fines to the court on your old City of Houston traffic ticket. You don't!
To avoid being arrested in the Houston
Warrant Roundup, you can post a cash bond or pay a surety bondsman or an attorney
bondsman to post a bond for you. You will then be out of warrants and can still fight your tickets in the
Houston Municipal Courts.
Remember, when you post a bond to get out of warrants, you have not been convicted and you will receive a new court
date. On your new court date, you can come to court and contest the charges on your outstanding ticket. This
article about the "Houston Warrant Round-up" was written for The Courtfinder.Com by Houston traffic ticket defense
lawyer, Kameron K. Searle.
