The City of Hooks, Texas is offering an amnesty period from February 1, 2016 through March 1, 2016  for people who have outstanding warrants.

The Municipal Court of Hooks is offering the warrant amnesty as a goodwill gesture to individuals who face arrest and other penalties due to a past failure to appear (FTA) at court.

Under the program, outstanding warrants issued before January 1, 2016 will be cancelled and the warrant fee/collection fee will be waived, thereby allowing individuals to resolve their outstanding court case. The Municipal Court of Hooks has hundreds of active warrants it is seeking to clear. Now is the time for citizens to take advantage of the warrant set aside and resolve all delinquent court cases.

Once the amnesty period ends the City of Hooks will aggressively enforce all active warrants. Citizens are encouraged to contact the court immediately in order to avoid arrest in the future. Form of payments accepted will be cash, check, or money order only. If paying in cash, please come in to the Hooks City Hall at 603 E. Ave. A  If mailing a payment, please make checks/money orders payable to the City of Hooks and send to City of Hooks Municipal Court PO Box 37 Hooks, Texas 75561.

For accurate processing, please include the citation number or a copy of the ticket along with your payment. Do not send cash in the mail. If you are interested in finding out if you have a warrant or citation with the Hooks Municipal Court call 903-547-7056 between 8AM-4:30PM Monday through Friday.
