Entering Your Plea
When making an initial appearance, individuals must decide upon and enter a plea to the charge.  Signing a citation in front of an officer is a promise to appear in court and not a 'Guilty' plea.  The decision on what plea to enter is very important.

Types of Pleas
The Benbrook Municipal Court suggests reading and understanding all three plea options prior to appearance:

  • Plea of Guilty
  • Plea of Nolo Contendere (No Contest)
  • Plea of Not Guilty

Failure to Appear
Failure to appear once a court date is set or deadline has passed will result in a warrant for arrest.  Additional fines are levied for failure to appear.
