Amnesty offered to those wanted on warrants | Crime
Greene County is showing a little mercy to those wanted for not paying their fines.
According to a news release from the Paragould Police Department, those who have a warrant for nonpayment of fines issued before April 1 might be able to have the warrant dismissed or the fines dropped.
Those who have outstanding warrants for revocation of probation, failure to appear or contempt of court issued before April 1, might also be able to have the warrants dismissed.
However, you must do the following:
Turn yourself in sometime between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday at the PPD, Greene County Sheriff’s Department or the agency that originally charged you.
Pay the underlying charge/tickets in full, plus a $50 warrant service at the time you surrender.
Chief Todd Stovall says for most people that is all that will be required.
Some charges, however, will require a court appearance due to possible restitution, victims’ rights or the underlying charges carry jail time or other requirements.
You will not be arrested at the time you turn yourself in, according to the news release.
Amnesty will last only a few weeks and will end without warning.
