Q Is a constable entitled to a fee if the defendant is never arrested and does not appear when the court has issued the warrant?
A No. The constable earns a process fee if he personally serves and executes the warrant on the defendant pursuant to its terms. If the warrant provides for the arrest of the defendant, the constable is not entitled to the fee if he did not arrest the defendant. (Attorney Generalís Opinion to Roberts dated June 25, 2010)
