COURT News:

Los Alamos Municipal Judge Alan Kirk’s office has released a list of eight recent outstanding bench warrants issued for failure to appear in court.

The Court has more than 370 outstanding bench warrants.

There are several ways to clear a bench warrant and all of them will require a court date for an appearance before the Judge Kirk:

  • If you wish to avoid being arrested you may contact the Court and arrange to appear at a scheduled arraignment. If you have a warrant for failure to pay fines you may be able to clear it by paying the outstanding fines and bench warrant fees at the clerical window.
  • If you are arrested and a bond is identified, you can post bond (cash, money order or cashier check only) to be released from custody. If you do not post a bond you will remain in custody and be set for the next court date. If you post a cash bond, you will be released from custody and set for a future arraignment date.
  • You can turn yourself into the jail by going to Los Alamos Police Department and if a bond is identified you can post bond (cash, money order or cashier check only) if there is a bond amount or await the next court date.  If you post a cash bond, you will be released from custody and set for a future arraignment date.

Bonds will be returned to the posting party once all obligations have been fulfilled. You (or whoever posted the bond for you) may sign a form allowing it to be converted to payment of fines and fees.

If you think there may be an outstanding bench warrant with Los Alamos Municipal Court issued for you, please contact the Municipal Court at 505.662.8025. You can obtain information regarding your options and it is possible you may be able to clear the bench warrant without being arrested.

The Municipal Court is inside the Los Alamos Justice Center at 2500 Trinity Dr., in Los Alamos.
