The court’s mission is to impartially administer justice in a fair and efficient manner so that trust and accountability are exemplified to the public that we serve.

The Municipal Court holds monthly arraignments, handling the judicial processing of Class “C” misdemeanors that originate from traffic citations and code violations, occurring within the territorial limits of the City of Jarrell. The Municipal Court processing is pre-determined by the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure and the Code of Judicial Conduct.
If a defendant does not appeal the court’s decision but is unable to pay the fine when due, the defendant must appear at the clerk’s office and request their case be set on a show cause docket. If the defendant qualifies, the court may allow the defendant to pay the fine in installments or discharge the fine by performing community service. If community service creates an undue hardship, the judge may enter a finding of indigence and waive fines and fees.
