Municipal court launches amnesty program

The City of Atlanta Municipal Court has launched a warrant amnesty program. The one-time program will offer individuals who face arrest, and other penalties due to delinquent traffic, city ordinance, or misdemeanor violations, the opportunity to clear past violations without additional court penalties. Under the program, contempt fees for a past failure to appear will be waived and the outstanding warrant will be cancelled.

The amnesty period began Monday and runs through March 27.

In order to qualify for the warrant amnesty program individuals must have an unadjudicated citation filed at court before November 18, 2014 and have failed to appear for that citation.

When the amnesty period ends remaining outstanding warrants will be rigorously enforced.
