Deadline extended for amnesty program

Posted: Updated:
DECATUR, GA (CBS46) -

Due to a tremendous response, the DeKalb County State Court Traffic Division is extending the deadline to register for its citation amnesty program. 

This program waives contempt fees for failure to appear in court for individuals facing penalties due to delinquent traffic tickets.

The registration period for this program has been extended to July 20, 2018.

“The goal of our citation amnesty program is to provide individuals with open or delinquent citations an opportunity to efficiently resolve their matters and restore their driving record,” said Presiding Judge Shondeana Morris.

The program is available to any individual with citations issued from January 2010 to December 2017.

Court sessions will be held weekdays at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. 

The court is offering online sign-up at www.dekalbstatecourt.net/Amnesty. The court will also allow signups for available sessions starting at 8:30 a.m. each day for the same service.

Citizens can sign up for text/email notifications for their assigned court date for amnesty at www.courtinnovations.com/GADCSC. Individuals who wish to clear penalties and warrants under this program are encouraged to sign up early. When the time-limited amnesty period ends, any remaining open cases and outstanding warrants will be rigorously enforced.
