SCAM ALERT!!  If you receive a phone call telling you that the caller is affiliated with this court and that you must appear for a hearing at the court or face the issuance of an arrest warrant unless you pay some money to the court, please hang up.  This is a scam.  Neither the Court nor the Clerk’s office would ever call anyone demanding money in that way, and we do not call anyone about arrest warrants.
