Role of Magistrate Court

The primary responsibilities of the Collin County Magistrate Court include advising the defendants of their rights, determining probable cause, setting bond, and issuing warrants in criminal cases. The Magistrate may also issue and enforce bond conditions.

A defendant is considered to be a person charged with a crime. The Magistrate Court does not determine guilt or innocence in criminal cases. Our Judges and staff are committed to the concepts of excellence, fair justice and mutual respect.
