Citation Arraignments

When you receive your citation, a court date and time will be provided to you by the citing agency. If your citation is marked "Court Mandatory" you will need to appear on the date and time provided on your citation. The court requires certain offenses to have a mandatory appearance. Please contact the court to make sure you are not required to appear.

***Proof of correction is to be presented at the time of arraignment to be considered for fine reduction***

Citation court is held every Thursday at 8:45 a.m. Check-in starts at 7:30 a.m. and is required prior to entering the court room. If the court session has started prior to your check-in, you will be given a continuance for the following Thursday date. A second missed arraignment date will require a $25 extension fee to be paid at the time of the request.

If you have already been to court and entered a 'Not Guilty' plea and were provided a new court date for a Pre-Trial Conference, you may be eligible to resolve your citation without returning to court. Please contact the Washoe County District Attorney's Office via email at DA-Citations@washoecounty.us if you elect this option.
