The walk-in dockets are primarily for people with warrants, especially for failure to appear. It is an opportunity for them to ask a judge to will set aside the warrant and give them another court date without having to go through the expense of posting bond. However, individuals going to the walk-in docket should be prepared to post bond because there is a possibility that the judge will not cancel their warrant and will choose to take them into custody instead.
