Judge offers amnesty program in Miller County and Texarkana, Arkansas

TEXARKANA, Arkansas -- District Judge Tommy Potter is announcing a warrant amnesty period for individuals with outstanding warrants for failure to appear, failure to obey a court order or failure to report.

Now through April 29, the court will waive the warrant fee and jail time if full payment for the warrants is received for cases active in both the city of Texarkana, Arkansas, and Miller County, Arkansas. Officers will not arrest anyone that appears at the Bi-State or the Miller County Correctional Facility to pay their fines.

The programs allows individuals with outstanding warrants to avoid the embarrassment and inconvenience of being arrested, to avoid being assessed court costs of $350 and allows for resolution of the case entirely.

"These individuals have had their driving privilege suspended and clearing these fines will enable them an opportunity to regain a valid driver's license," Chief Probation Officer Debbie Nolte said. "With income tax returns coming in, it is a great time for people to take advantage of this opportunity."

Individuals who are uncertain of their warrant status or who have questions may contact the probation department at 903-798-3243; district court clerk at 903-798-3016; Miller County district court via the probation department at 870-773-2971 or the district court clerk at 870-772-2780.
