Warrant Amnesty Program Declared a Success
The Baytown Municipal Court held two successful warrant amnesty days on February 25 and March 4. The amnesty program allowed criminal defendants to appear in court – without fear of arrest – to resolve their cases. The annual program saw tens of thousands in outstanding fines collected, and helped the Municipal Court resolve many cases and mete out justice.
The Municipal Court and Marshal’s Office cleared 106 outstanding warrants and collected $36,244 during the two day program. $26,705 was collected in monies and $9,539 was discharged through compliance dismissals, plea bargains and jail time.
Following the close of the annual campaign, the City of Baytown Marshal’s Office and Police Department began participation in a state-wide effort, dubbed the Great Texas Warrant Round-Up, to find and arrest lawbreakers who did not take advantage of the program. The round-up will continue through March, and anyone with warrants is urged to contact immediately the City of Baytown Marshal’s Office to avoid arrest at home, on the street, or at work.
Defendants with warrants in the Baytown Municipal Court should be aware of the following court guidelines:
- Defendants with warrants who have not entered a plea of guilty or no contest or been found guilty by judge or jury will be required to post bond in order to secure another court date or their release from jail; Defendants with warrants who failed to satisfy their sentences after entering a plea of guilty or no contest or being found guilty by a judge or jury must pay the total amount of any outstanding fines or serve their time in the Baytown Municipal Jail at a rate of $100 per 24 hour period.
- Court fees and fines are due and must be paid in full immediately following conviction, entry of a plea, or upon the judge’s order. (Indigency hearings are granted when applicable.) Failure to do so will result in the case being placed in warrant status, making the Defendant eligible for arrest and incarceration.
- Failure to appear or to satisfy fines may subject a Defendant to a penalty fee in the amount of 30% of the fine due in addition to the prosecutor filing additional charges for failure to appear, violating a promise to appear, and charges for any other applicable violations of the law.
For more information regarding outstanding warrants, payments or amounts due, contact the City of Baytown Marshall’s Office, at 281-425-1008 or 281-425-1014.
