By Gary Lloyd
TRUSSVILLE — Trussville Municipal Court and the Trussville Police Department are offering an amnesty day Wednesday, Feb. 12 due to the high number of outstanding warrants.
The amnesty day, granted by Judge Carl Chamblee, begins at 8 a.m. for people to clear outstanding warrants on failure to appear, failure to comply and bail jumping for any of the following offenses: Not appearing in court on original charge; not completing a court-ordered program; or have outstanding fines, court costs and/or restitution or warrants for writing a bad check.
Defendants must pay all outstanding fines, court costs and/or restitution on Feb. 12. If a court-ordered program was not completed, the court will re-enroll the defendant in the program.
Last year’s amnesty day 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.
For more information, call the Trussville Municipal Court at 205-655-8352 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
