Municipal Court to offer warrant forgiveness from Feb 14 to March 29

PALESTINE, FEBRUARY 12, 2018 -- The City of Palestine Municipal Court announces several dates offering  amnesty to those with warrants. 

Anyone who has outstanding warrants with Palestine Municipal Court is invited to resolve their cases. Persons who voluntarily take action on their cases will not be arrested and may be eligible for alternatives such as community service or a reduction in their fine.

Beginning February 14 – March 29, defendants who appear in open court before the judge can take advantage of this offer. The judge will be available every Wednesday (excluding March 14) at 9 a.m. or 1:30 p.m. and March 1 and 29 at 9 a.m.

Defendants who have failed to appear in court and have arrest warrants or defendants who have been convicted, failed to pay their fine and have capias warrants will both be given amnesty.

“This is a great opportunity for people to dispose of their warrants and feel comfortable speaking to the judge without the fear of being arrested,” stated Courtney Acklin, court administrator .

A current list of warrants can be found on the city’s website at cityofpalestinetx.com. For more information on this initiative and other court information, please visit cityofpalestinetx.com/municipal court/ or call the Court during business hours at 903-731-8433.
