TRUSSVILLE — The amnesty day offered by the Trussville Municipal Court and Trussville Police Department has been rescheduled for Feb. 26 beginning at 8 a.m.
The amnesty day was originally scheduled for last Wednesday, but wintry weather forced the city to postpone the event.
The amnesty day, granted by Judge Carl Chamblee, is 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 the amnesty day. 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.
