Criminal Department
A misdemeanor case for the county court at law will usually originate in the office of the District Attorney. There, a citizen or peace officer will swear out a complaint alleging that a misdemeanor has been committed. If the District Attorney decides that there is probable cause for prosecution and that jurisdiction in the matter lies within the county court, the attorney will have the complaint issued from the attorney's office and filed with the county clerk.

The clerk's duties in criminal cases are varied and include filing these cases, issuing the processes, maintaining minutes of proceedings, collecting costs and fines, accepting cash bonds (and refund of same) and arranging for commitments and appeals.
