AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Austin Municipal Court and Downtown Community Court will conduct a Warrant Amnesty Program for those with active warrants from February 1 through 28.

People who resolve active warrants will have fees waived, although they must contact the court to take advantage of this program. Under the program, officers will not be sent out to take defendants into custoday and those who come to any municipal court or community court location will not be arrested. 

This program applies only to active cases in front of the Austin Municipal Court or Downton Austin Community Court.

There are multiple walk-in dockets scheduled Mondays through Fridays during the amnesty period. Judges will be available at the walk-in dockets for people to address their cases. No appointments are needed.

Options will be available for individuals who are not able to pay immediately, including payment plans, community service or waivers for those who qualify. 

Information, times and dates can be accessed here.
