The City of McKinney is participating in a statewide warrant roundup and urges anyone with an outstanding warrant or citation to resolve it right away to avoid arrest. The initiative in McKinney will primarily target active fine-only misdemeanor warrants, but any warrant could be served.
Starting February 15, the McKinney Municipal Court will allow individuals with active fine-only misdemeanor warrants to appear voluntarily at the court to resolve their cases without the threat of arrest. Anyone appearing in person during that time may make payment arrangements on cases with warrants. Those seeking to make payment arrangements must put a minimum of $100 down. Specific payment terms will be determined through an application and interview process.
Defendants with warrants are encouraged to contact the City of McKinney Municipal Court as soon as possible by:
Appearing in person at the McKinney Municipal Court building at 130 South Chestnut McKinney, Texas 75069, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. and Thursday until 7 p.m.
Calling 972-547-7676 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday
Warrants remain active unless the fine is paid in full. In accordance with Texas Code of Criminal Procedure, Art. 27.14(c), case payment will result in waiver of a jury trial and a finding of guilty, which may be reported to the Texas Department of Public Safety.
Payment onlinewill result in a conviction on your driving record if you have not previously entered a plea.
