If you or someone you know has an outstanding arrest warrant for certain types of tickets, you may be able to have your warrant recalled on August 1.

The Montgomery County District Court along with the Montgomery County Circuit Clerk's Office are offering an amnesty program for those individuals who have outstanding arrest warrants. If the person with the ticket meets the criteria to qualify, he or she may pay one half of the total amount owed on all tickets. Their warrant will also be recalled.

After coming forth to pay half of the ticket, the individual will then be given a payment plan and allowed six weeks to pay the remaining balance. Failure to comply with the payment plan will result in the issuance of an arrest warrant. 

Individuals must meet the following criteria:

1. The traffic ticket(s) were adjudicated in Montgomery County District Court.
2. The traffic ticket(s) were due to be paid in full more than 90 days prior to August 1, 2014.
3. The individual either failed to appear in court, or failed to pay the ticket(s), and has an active
warrant for his/her arrest.

For more information as to whether you qualify for the program, or the amount currently owed for any traffic ticket(s) obtained in the Montgomery County District Court, please contact the Montgomery County Circuit Clerk's Office at (334)832-1260.
