The Town of Muldrow is offering amnesty to those who have not paid their traffic tickets or showed up for court on their scheduled dates. A warrant is issued for those who don’t pay or appear as scheduled, which adds another $225 fee to the original fine.
Muldrow Court Clerk Lea Ann Holt said those who would like to take advantage of the offered amnesty must pay the original ticket or fine in full at her office at the police department. The office is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and tickets and fines may be paid at any time, she said. The amnesty period runs through March 31.
Holt also explained that, when these warrants are issued, the state also suspends driver’s licenses. To reactivate the license, the driver must pay the reinstatement fee. Those fees begin at $50 and go up depending on how many times the license has been suspended, she said.
Holt said the town hopes this amnesty will reduce the large number of warrant records. She said the town has at least 600 warrants issued, going back to 2000.
“We have a ton of them,” Holt said Wednesday.
