Municipal Court

If you were issued a citation by a Denton, UNT, or TWU Police Officer, that ticket was probably filed with the Denton Municipal Court for resolution. You have options for how you want to interact with the Court. You can view your case and resolution options online, talk with a Clerk about your options, or appear in Court to speak to the Judge on your scheduled date and time.

Please Note:  If your offense is higher than a Class C Misdemeanor, was issued by another type of public safety officer (i.e., Sheriff, State Trooper), or was issued in another city, your case is likely filed with another court. The Denton Municipal Court does NOT have access to records of the county or other city courts.
