Baker offering bench warrant amnesty program
BAKER- The City Court of Baker is granting amnesty to people who have skipped out on court.
The city has more than 5,000 bench warrants on record totaling about $300,000. The city held a similar program earlier this year and 400 people cleared their names. City officials hope that this time around the program will prove even more effective.
During the month of December anyone with an outstanding bench warrant issued prior to November 30, 2015 will be able to have it recalled for free. The defendant will then be given a new court date and a time period to pay any outstanding fees they may owe.
If you're not sure if you have an outstanding bench warrant call 225-778-1866.
