Online Payments

Justice Court, Pct. 1 ONLY

If you wish to plead GUILTY or NOLO CONTENDERE and not appear in Court, you may do so by paying the full amount of the citation/ticket assessed online.

(1)  Click here to be redirected to our payment portal to make an online payment. You will need to know your case number and fine amount. If you have questions about this or experience issues please contact the Court at 254-694-3140.

Reminder: This option is only available for adult defendants ages 17 and over for criminal offenses committed after age 17.

Paying your citation/ticket online means entering a plea of Guilty or Nolo Contendere (No Contest) and waiving your right to a trial by jury.

Texas Code of Criminal Procedure, Article 27.14 (c): "In a misdemeanor case for which the maximum possible punishment is by fine only, a payment of a fine or an amount accepted by the court constitutes a finding of guilty in open court as though a plea of nolo contendere had been entered by the defendant and constitutes a waiver of a jury trial in writing."


Alternatives To Payment of Fines and Costs

Code of Criminal Procedure Art. 27.14(b)

A defendant convicted of a criminal offense punishable by a fine only is entitled to alternative methods of satisfying the judgment against them if they cannot pay the fine or costs, in whole or in part. For further information about alternatives to payment of Fines and Costs, don't hesitate to contact the Court at 254-694-3140 or by email at

Those alternative methods include:

1.   A payment plan allows the defendant to make payments toward the fine and costs in designated intervals. 

Notice: If any amount is paid more than 30 days after the judgment assessing the fine or costs, a $ 15-time payment fee must be assessed.

2.   Disposition of the amount assessed by performing community service.

(1) A defendant is entitled to a minimum of $100 credit for every 8 hours of community service performed.

(2) If performing community service imposes an undue hardship, an indigent defendant who lacks sufficient resources to pay is entitled to a waiver of the fine and costs, in whole or in part.

Notice: Many options meet the requirements of the law for community service; see Art. 45.049 of the Code of Criminal Procedure for full details.
