TRUSSVILLE, AL (WBRC) -

The Trussville Municipal Court and Police Department say they are dealing with a high number of outstanding warrants so they are joining together to offer an Amnesty Day in an effort to clear the backlog.

The date for the Amnesty Day is set for Feb. 22, beginning at 8 a.m. Those with warrants for failure to appear, failure to comply and bail jumping for the reasons of:

-Not appearing in court on an original charge

-Not completing a court ordered program

-Outstanding fines, court costs or restitution

-Warrants for writing a bad check

Defendants will have to pay all fines, court costs and restitution that day. If a court ordered program was not completed, the defendant will be re-enrolled in the program.

Those with questions can call 205-655-8352 weekdays between 9 a.m and 4p.m.
