The 2013 Great Texas Warrant Roundup is underway! Starting on March 2, 2013, over three hundred law enforcement agencies throughout Texas have thousands of deputy sheriffs, city marshals, and city police officers actively seeking to take you into custody, if you have active arrest warrants issued in your name. Law enforcement will be looking for you, if you have warrants for your arrest of any type, be they for felonies, misdemeanors, or even traffic ticket warrants. Make no mistake: if you have a warrant for your arrest, anywhere in Texas, you should expect a visit from a police officer during the Great Texas Warrant Roundup of 2013 who is looking to put you in handcuffs and take you to jail. Not only can you be arrested in a routine traffic stop, but the police will be visiting people at their homes, jobs, and schools.
If you have ticket warrants, don’t simply pay the fine. Sometimes, certain cities will publicize a “warrant forgiveness day” or amnesty program, in which they state you will not be arrested, if you will simply come to the court and pay the fine. On occasion, they will further attempt to persuade you that this is a good idea by claiming that they will waive any warrant fees that my have accrued in your case. However,
you should know that paying the fine is the worst thing you can possibly do on your case. If you go to court and just pay the fine on your traffic ticket warrant, your case will appear as a conviction on your driving record. In Texas, traffic ticket convictions can lead to hefty surcharges, increased insurance premiums, points on your license, and even drivers license suspension.
