  • You can contact the County or District Clerk to see if you are a party in a civil or criminal case or are subject to a warrant from the court. You can call the municipal court or justice courts as well. If you have been arrested, you should expect that you have a case. If you have bonded out of custody it is your responsibility to update the County/District Clerk with your current contact information so that they will send you any future court dates.

  • You do not. In every case the State of Texas and her laws have been violated. The prosecutor represents the state of Texas and her interest. The constitution gives the prosecutor sole discretion as to the cases accepted or prosecuted. If you want to file an affidavit of non-prosecution, then schedule to meet with the Victim Witness Coordinator and prosecutor assigned the case, bring two forms of ID (at least one photo-ID) and make a sworn statement. You can be prosecuted if you previously made a deliberate false statement to a peace officer or if you were to deliberately lie under oath. If is wrong to lie and put someone in jail, or to release a criminal from jail.
