Frequently Asked Questions

You must appear at the Criminal Division counter 30 minutes prior to the hearing time noted below to clear a pending warrant of arrest Monday through Friday at:

  • 1:30pm for misdemeanor cases, Monday - Friday
  • 8:30 or 2:30pm for felony cases, Monday - Friday

The clerk will direct you to a specific courtroom where you will respond to the outstanding warrant. If you fail to report to the assigned courtroom, your warrant will remain outstanding.

In some instances, the clerks in the Criminal/Post Court Services division may provide a re-referral to a court ordered program. If you are on formal probation, you must obtain written permission from your Probation Officer before appearing at the Criminal/Post Court Services Division counter.

If granted, an Expungement allows a person who has been previously convicted of a misdemeanor or certain felonies to reopen their case and set aside the conviction. Withdraw their plea of “guilty”, enter a plea of “not guilty”, and close the case without a conviction. The Penal Code sections that govern this action are 1203.4 and 1203.4a.

Granting of an Expungement does not remove the case entirely from your record. The arrest and charges will still exist and you must disclose the conviction in any direct question contained in any application for public office, for licensure by state or local agency or for contact with the California State Lottery.

If you need time to pay your ticket, payment plans are available through GC Services. You must be referred by the Court for a payment plan before you can begin making payments. A $35.00 administrative fee will be added. Arrangements for working off all or a portion of the fine would be made through the Court's collection agency. A financial evaulation will be held and if found eligible, you will be referred to the Court for placement.

If you were arrested and released with a court date written on your form, you must appear in court as ordered. A failure to appear in court on the date shown will result in a warrant for your arrest.

All remand dates are mandatory and cannot be changed or postponed. You must appear for remand at the jail on the date and time noted on the documentation given to you in court. Contact the jail for further information at (707) 253-4401.
