Court Amnesty Program: Court Waives Late Fees
March 21, 2017 – The 35th District Court announces the 2017 Amnesty
Program for all delinquent civil infraction tickets. Unpaid tickets can
accumulate additional default fees, late fees and warrant fees, which
increase the original amount of the ticket. This program provides
individuals with an opportunity to settle their old court financial
obligations and pay the original amount of the ticket. In addition, the
program assists the court in clearing up a backlog of files without
additional court resources and collection costs.
The court will
give citizens an opportunity to resolve their outstanding tickets, avoid
possible arrest and take advantage of the court waiving late penalties
