Community Service

Juvenile defendants may be sentenced to community service. Some violations of State law require the Municipal Court Judge to order community service as part of the defendant’s sentence. If community service is ordered as a part of a Judgment by the Municipal Court or Teen Court, juvenile defendants are not ordered to a certain location to complete their community service obligations.

Community Service Partnerships
The Municipal Court Juvenile Case Manager may be able to assist with finding locations to complete community service. The Municipal Court maintains a list of Community Service Partnerships to help individuals find locations to complete community service. If using a partner agency to complete your community service, please contact your selected Community Service Partnership Agency as soon as possible. Community Service may be completed at any 501.C3 non-profit organization. You are not restricted to 1 location, and can utilize as many different, non-profits or partnership agencies you would like to complete the community service obligation.

Community Service Time Sheet

When completing community service, the community service participant must fill out a community service time sheet. In addition, the person supervising the community service participant must initial and then sign in the appropriate locations on the community service time sheet. The address and telephone number of the person supervising the community service participant should be neatly and accurately filled out on the form so the municipal court can verify the service hours.

If you have any questions about community service, or if you are a representative of an organization that is interested in becoming a community service partner, please contact the Burleson Municipal Court at 817-426-9220.
