UGCrR 2.5 PROCEDURE ON FAILURE TO OBEY CITATION OR NOTICE (1) Warrant Costs. The maximum warrant preparation fee permitted under RCW 10.01.160 shall be assessed whenever the Court orders a warrant based on a defendant's failure to appear for any mandatory court appearance on a jailable offense. The fee shall include any costs for service of the warrant. (2) Quashing Warrants. The Court, in its discretion, may quash a warrant under the following circumstances: (a) The defendant may personally appear at the clerk's office and pay the amount of the warrant fee in cash. The defendant shall then personally sign a promise to appear at a hearing no later than the next judicial day. The Court will determine the appropriate conditions for the defendant's continued release at that hearing. (b) Nothing in this rule shall be construed to limit the Court's power to quash a warrant when justice otherwise requires.
