If you have a warrant for your arrest on the Tulalip Reservation, you may be able to quash it and get a new hearing date.
Warrants are issued because you failed to appear at your hearing or there was a criminal complaint filed against you. Failing to comply with a court order (such as having a community supervision violation or a missed urinalysis) could also lead to a warrant being issued.
The Tulalip Tribal Court encourages you to quash your warrant. It shows you are taking care of business and makes a good impression on the judge. It’s also advised that you keep your warrant quash paperwork on you for at least one week.
First-time offenders (sometimes second-time offenders) don’t pay anything for a warrant quash. If you are a repeat offender, the judge may levy a fee, anywhere from $25, $50, or $75. Once you’ve paid the fee, the police, prosecution, and community supervision will be notified that you came to the court to quash your warrant.
Warrant quashes are held on Mondays from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM and on Fridays from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM (please show up at least 15 minutes early).
If you have questions regarding warrant quashes, you can call the tribal court at 360-716-4773.
