Warning

If you fail to appear in court as ordered, the court will issue a warrant for your arrest and you can be jailed and/or fined. For more information, comments, or questions contact us at (620) 325-2828.

Subpoenas

A subpoena is a court order that requires a person to appear in court to give testimony or to present documents and related articles to be produced as evidence at a hearing. A process server or officer will serve a witness personally with a subpoena. The City Attorney may also ask a witness to appear voluntarily without serving a subpoena.

If you have received a subpoena, follow the instructions on it. Failing to follow a subpoena is considered contempt of court and a warrant may be issued for your arrest.

Warrants

If you fail to appear on your court date or comply with the court's orders, the municipal court judge can issue a warrant for your arrest. If you are stopped by an officer for any reason, the officer will arrest you and take you into custody.
