Unless you are pleading “not guilty”, you must enter a plea of no contest or guilty to pay your fine and court costs. A judgment and conviction will be entered and this conviction will be reported to the Texas Department of Public Safety.
You may pay your court costs on a payment plan. By law, if any portion of the fine, court costs, or restitution are unpaid on or after the 31st day after the date of the judgment, a one-time payment reimbursement fee will be added to each case. For those cases which have a date of offense that is on or before December 31, 2019 the fee is $25.00 per case. For those cases which have a date of offense that is on or after January 1, 2020 the fee is $15.00 per case.
You may pay your fines and court costs on line at https://www.municipalonlinepayments.com/corpuschristitx/, in person, the drop box located outside of Municipal Court, or you may mail in your payments.
If you have an Ordinance case, it cannot be paid on line. All defendants who have an Ordinance case must appear in person for your Court setting.
If you are unable to pay the ordered fines and costs there are other options available to satisfy the court costs and fines. To see if you qualify for these options you will need to appear in person and bring all documents identifying all sources of income and bills.
