Ingham County, MI–The 54A, 54B, and 55th District Courts are spring cleaning and want to help county residents clean up their records. The courts are offering an amnesty program for those that have a warrant for their arrest for failure to pay fines and costs. 54A and 54B Courts offer their program online. The 55th District Court offers the program for individuals who appear at the court and meet with collections personnel.
The online Amnesty Program offered by 54A (Lansing) and 54B (East Lansing) District Courts provides for a 20-percent reduction in the amount due for qualified defendants that pay in full between April 1 and 30, 2016. The online program will ask individuals a series of qualifying questions to determine if they are eligible to resolve the arrest warrant online. If eligible and payment made in full, the warrant will be canceled and defendants will receive notification via text or email that the case is resolved and closed. The Amnesty program offered by the 55th District Court provides a reduction in the amount owed to the court by the removal of any late fees and assessments, upon approval by collection personnel. In addition, any bench warrant for failure to pay fines and costs will be canceled.
