The Texarkana, Ark., District Court, and Miller County District Court will grant amnesty for individuals who have outstanding warrants for failure to appear or contempt of court.

Judge Tommy Potter has announced the amnesty period will end on April 9. During this time, the District Court will waive the warrant fee and jail time if it receives full payment for these warrants.

The City of Texarkana had this to say about the program:

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.

Chief Probation Officer, Debbie Nolte, said,

“These individuals have had their driving privilege suspended, 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.”

Officers will not arrest anyone who appears at the Bi-State or The Miller County Correctional Facility to pay these fines. If in doubt, you may contact the Probation Department at 903-798-3243 or the District Court Clerk at 903-798-3016.
