Motions for Continuance

Filing a Motion for Continuance


The Municipal Court Judge will permit both the state and the defendant to request one reset of the pending case. However, you must file a Request (Motion) for Continuance prior to your scheduled court date and time to be eligible for a reset without penalty.

Failure to Appear


If you failed to appear on your scheduled date and time, the fine will be increased by $50.00, not to exceed the maximum amount allowed by state law. If you would like to reset your case, contact the court to determine available options.

If you had an attorney and either you or your attorney failed to appear on your scheduled date and time, an appearance bond  may be required to obtain another court setting.
