If you’re visiting a municipal court chances are you’re paying a ticket or a fee.
This week Brownsville residents can visit their local courts without spending a single dime. From now until Thursday the city of Brownsville will celebrate municipal court week. From what to do when you get a ticket to knowing your rights.
Residents can attend various information sessions to learn more about the court system.
Judge Robert Lerma, Brownsville Municipal Court said, “We explain the role of what the judge does. What your role is when you get a ticket, the prosecutors, or your rights such as the trial. We want everyone to come out and learn, meet the staff, we’ll give you tours if you’d like.”
The week long event will take place at the Brownsville City Plaza. A meet and greet with Judge Lerma is scheduled for Wednesday morning.
