Municipal Court

Cell phones are not allowed in the Court Room!


The West University Place Municipal Court has jurisdiction over Class C Misdemeanors and City Ordinance Violations punishable by fine only.

Court Costs & Fines

Court costs are assessed if you are found guilty at trial, request a Driving Safety Course, or if you plead guilty or nolo contendere (no contest). Court costs vary by charge.


  • Guilty: A judicial confession that one is guilty as charged. It is an admission of guilt.
  • Nolo Contendere (No Contest): A statement that the defendant does not wish to contest the pending charges. Nolo contendere (no contest) is not an admission or denial of guilt.
  • Not Guilty: A denial of guilty to the pending charges


Requests for a continuance must be made in person (or by an attorney) on or before the appearance date. You must fill out and sign a reset form at the clerk's office before a continuance will be granted. Only one reset will be granted. No resets will be made by telephone.

Expired Violations

Certain violations may be dismissed at the Municipal Court's discretion and upon payment of a $20 compliance fee. Please contact the Court Clerk's Office for further information.
