Warrant Amnesty Program Begins

cuffs

The Longview Municipal Court is offering a warrant amnesty program from January 1, 2019 through March 31, 2019. We encourage anyone with an outstanding warrant through our court, to take this opportunity to save some money and get a fresh start. Anyone that comes to the clerk’s office to take care of their outstanding warrants will be given safe harbor. 

When a citizen comes in voluntarily and either pays in full or pays a minimum of ½ the total amount due and starts a payment plan for the balance owed, all warrant fees will be removed. As an added incentive, anyone that pays in full will save an additional 20 percent off the fine amount. The percentage savings is only on the fine, not the court costs however. The more they owe, the more they save!

We are also offering assistance to those individuals that may be short on funds right now and are planning  to use their income tax refund to clear up their warrants. If they come see us now, we will lift the warrants and give them an extension of time to pay.  

We will work out an agreeable action plan for anyone that is willing to make the effort to come in and clear up their warrants.
