FYI – Trussville Municipal Court offering amnesty day

By Gary Lloyd

Due to the high number of outstanding warrants, Trussville Municipal Court and the Trussville Police Department have joined together in an effort to clear the backlog.

Trussville Municipal Judge Carl Chamblee Jr. will grant an amnesty day Friday, Feb. 22 starting at 8 a.m. for people to clear outstanding warrants on failure to appear, failure to comply and bail jumping for any of the following reasons:

  • Not appearing in court on original charge
  • Not completing a court-ordered program
  • Having outstanding fines, court costs and/or restitution
  • Warrants for writing a bad check(s)

Defendants who come to the amnesty day must pay all outstanding fines, court costs and/or restitution on that day. If a court-ordered program was not completed, the court will re-enroll the defendant in the program.

The court and police department encourage those with outstanding warrants to “take advantage of this unique opportunity,” according to a Trussville Municipal Court press release.

For more information, call the court at 205-655-8352 between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.
