Amnesty Day Scheduled in Joplin - KOAM TV 7

Amnesty Day Scheduled in Joplin

Updated:

The Joplin Municipal Court will hold an Amnesty Day on Friday, May 18, 2018 from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with the check-in process beginning at 9:00 a.m.

Officials say the courts recognize the difficulties many residents might have in meeting their obligations with the Municipal Court.

"The City understands that someone may have missed a court date or let a ticket lapse," said Lamonte Ratcliff, Court Administrator. "Hosting an Amnesty Day allows people the opportunity to take care of cases without the fear of being arrested. It's a way to be productive for both the citizens we serve and the City."

On Amnesty Day, warrants will be recalled for anyone wishing to turn themselves in on warrants, at the Municipal Court, 303 East 3rd Street. This program is for Joplin Municipal City warrants only.

Ratcliff says that when warrants are issued for certain violations, the individual's driver's license may be suspended. During this program, the Court will lift suspensions on those offenders whose licenses are suspended through the Municipal Court, so they can begin the process of license reinstatement.

"Helping with license suspensions can be very beneficial for the citizen, and is offered to give additional support to those participating in the Amnesty Day," said Ratcliff.

To find out if you have an outstanding warrant, call 417-627-2930 or check online at www.joplinmo.org/warrants or www.municipalrecordsearch.com/joplinmo.
