Municipal Courts Announces “Spring Cleaning” Amnesty Program
Citizens Urged to Pay Court Orders While Cost Savings Available

HOUSTON, Texas –The City of Houston Municipal Courts Amnesty Program begins today and will be available on certain delinquent citations until 9:00 p.m., Friday, March 31, 2017. Court officials are encouraging anyone who has delinquent court matters to take advantage of this opportunity to resolve cases at a discounted rate.

 “This is a very limited time frame to save a lot of money, hundreds of dollars in some cases, so please don’t delay your decision to act on this great opportunity to resolve your court matters without fear of arrest. We are here to assist you and help eliminate your delinquent court cases. Citizens are urged to keep in mind that they may also come in and speak with a Judge during this Amnesty period,” stated Director and Presiding Judge, J. Elaine Marshall.

Most delinquent traffic and non-traffic citations that were delinquent before March 1, 2017 will be eligible for Amnesty discounts. To take advantage of this opportunity to resolve delinquent cases, individuals may pay by telephone, US mail or in person. Previously adjudicated criminal cases, parking citations, administrative violations, and civil case violations are not eligible for this Amnesty.

Court officials urge people to take advantage of this program because it may be a while before another amnesty is offered.

For more information about City of Houston warrants or citations, visit the website at www.houstontx.gov/courts or contact City’s Helpline at 3-1-1 or 713-837-0311 if outside the City of Houston.
