Judge's Ability to Dismiss
The municipal judge is responsible for conducting a fair, impartial, and public trial. The case against you is brought by the State of Texas through the prosecutor, not the court. The judge may not dismiss a case without the prosecutor having the right to try the case.
Citations for the offenses listed may be dismissed if you appear at the Municipal Court on or before the appearance date listed on your citation and present proof of correction of the defect.
The offense will not be dismissed if required proof is not submitted.
