Trussville’s amnesty day closes more than 65 cases
By Gary Lloyd
Trussville Municipal Court’s amnesty day Friday cleared more than 25 outstanding warrants and closed more than 65 cases.
The one-day event collected more than $18,000 in fines and costs, said Trussville Municipal Court Senior Court Clerk/Magistrate Melanie Colston.
The amnesty day was for people to clear outstanding warrants on failure to appear, failure to comply and bail jumping for any of the following reasons:
• Not appearing in court on original charge
• Not completing a court-ordered program
• Having outstanding fines, court costs and/or restitution
• Warrants for writing a bad check(s)
Defendants who came to the amnesty day paid all outstanding fines, court costs and/or restitution. If a court-ordered program was not completed, the court re-enrolled the defendant in the program.
