City of Lufkin Announces Warrant Amnesty Program Through April
The Lufkin Municipal Court is offering those persons who have an active outstanding warrant a chance to save some money and get a fresh start. A warrant amnesty program is now underway and will continue April 30, 2021.
According to a press release from the City of Lufkin, all warrant fees will be removed when a citizen voluntarily contacts the court to pay a minimum of one half the total amount due and start a payment plan for the balance owed.
As an added incentive, anyone that pays in full will also save an additional 20% off the fine amount. The percentage savings is only on the fine, not the court costs. The more you owe, the more you save.
The court will also offer assistance to those individuals that may not be able to pay half down or pay in full and will work out an agreeable action plan for anyone that is willing to make the effort to come in and clear up their warrants.
This year the Municipal Court is offering warrant amnesty by visiting the court in person (mask required), by telephone, or on-line due to COVID-19. Contact the Municipal Court at (936) 633-0315 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Anyone that comes to the clerk’s office to take care of their outstanding warrants will be given safe harbor.
