What the walk-in docket is for:
• Warrants: The walk-in dockets are primarily for people with warrants, especially for failure to appear. It is an opportunity for you to speak with a judge to see if that judge will set aside your warrant and give you another court date without having to go through the expense of posting bond.
However, you should be prepared to post bond because there is a possibility that the judge will not cancel your warrant and will choose to take you into custody instead.
• Continuances: Walk-in dockets are also a good opportunity for cases that may need to be continued because they cannot appear on their scheduled future court date but are ineligible for a continuance by web or phone. You most likely will not be able to resolve their case or show evidence at the walk-in docket but will be given a new court date.
• Additional time: Walk-in dockets are good for people who have cases that are already disposed of but they are having difficulty satisfying the Order of the Court (either financially paying or attending a class, completing community service, etc.).
What the walk-in docket is not for:
• Walk-in dockets are NOT for resolving your case by presenting any evidence. This is mainly because there is not a prosecutor present and the judge will not resolve a case without both sides having an opportunity to be present.
• You SHOULD NOT come to the walk-in docket and show their insurance, driver’s license, handicapped placards, etc. to get their cases resolved.
