2.1 Quashing Warrants (a) The defendant or defendant's attorney may file a motion and order to quash a warrant or pay an administrative fee to quash a warrant subject to subsection (b). The filing of a motion to quash a warrant will not stay the warrant and the defendant remains subject to arrest on the warrant. The motion to quash the warrant will be reviewed by the Judge and the court will either grant or deny the motion, or set a show case hearing for the parties to appear. If a show cause hearing is set by the Judge the warrant will remain outstanding until the proper bond is posted, the defendant is arrested, or the defendant appears in open court and the Judge quashes the warrant and the defendant signs for a new court date. (b) Warrants issued in an amount of $5,000 dollars or less are subject to an administrative warrant quash procedure whereby the defendant shall pay a nonrefundable administrative fee of $50.00 to the Court for the Court to quash the warrant and the defendant must sign for their next court date to appear. The warrant will not be quashed unless the defendant appears in person to sign for their next court date. Warrants issued in an amount over $5,000 are not subject to be quashed administratively by posting the administrative fee. September 2, 2013, amended.
