Tucson city court to hold second warrant day

The Tucson City Court, City Prosecutor, and City Public Defender will hold a second “Warrant Day” on Saturday, Dec. 5, 2015. Individuals with warrants may come to the court starting at 8 a.m. and see a judge, on a walk-in basis, regarding their warrant until 4 p.m. The goal of Warrant Day is to resolve the warrant and possibly close cases in warrant status. Tucson City Court is located at 103 E. Alameda and directions are posted online at https://www.tucsonaz.gov/courts/tucson-city-court.

Individuals can check the Court’s website to see if they have a warrant. Under “Online Resources” select the heading “See If You Have a Warrant” and follow the prompts. A case number or list of cases with the defendant’s name and case status will appear. If the case is in warrant status that will be indicated in the case status displayed. People can also click on the select button under view case and see details of that particular case.

This Warrant Day, the Court is asking individuals who have outstanding warrants and who are planning to come to the Court on Dec. 5, 2015 to address their warrant(s) to notify the Court in advance by email using the link “Contact Us “on the website or by emailing courtweb@tucsonaz.gov. Notifying the Court in advance will allow for the proper files to be pulled and documents to be prepared in advance. This should reduce the need to process a defendant’s cases and allow the Court to see more defendants. There will be no consequences if a defendant fails to show up on Warrant Day after sending an email
indicating they would attend. The Court’s goal is to have cases prepared in advance to serve as many defendants as possible.
