Judge Wren Autrey announced earlier this week that the Miller County District Courts, both City and County Divisions in Texarkana, Arkansas will grant Amnesty now through March 29, 2019 for individuals that have outstanding warrants for failure to appear, probation violation, or failure to report. The Amnesty began this past Monday, January 28.

According to a press release, during this time, the District Court will waive the warrant fee and jail time if it receives full payment for these warrants.

Officers will not arrest anyone who appears at the Bi-State or The Miller County Correctional Facility to pay these fines.

 Debbie Nolte, Chief Probation Officer, said the Amnesty Program would enable those sought on warrants to avoid the embarrassment and inconvenience of being arrested, avoid being assessed additional court costs of $350.00 and resolve their case entirely.

“These individuals have had their driving privilege suspended and clearing these fines will also enable them an opportunity to regain a valid driver’s license. With income tax returns coming in, it is a great time for people to take advantage of this opportunity.”

Judge Autrey also announced that following the Amnesty Program, the Probation Department will work in conjunction with the Texarkana Arkansas Police Department to conduct a warrant roundup for those individuals with the remaining outstanding warrants.

If in doubt you may contact the Probation Department 903-798-3243 or the District Court Clerk 903-798-3016. To contact the Miller County District Court, you may contact the Probation Department 870-773-2971 or the District Court Clerk 870-772-2780.
