The Johnson County Sheriff's Office will again be offering amnesty to anyone with a misdemeanor warrant from December 4 through December 31.
Anyone with a misdemeanor warrant may turn themselves in, pay 10% toward the total of the warrant and be released with a court date in 2014.
This is a great way to avoid being incarcerated prior to Christmas and having to spend monies to be bonded out that could be used for other purposes.
We urge everyone who has a misdemeanor warrant to take advantage of this program.
This program only applies to those who willingly and voluntarily turn themselves in. If you are stopped on a traffic stop or otherwise have contact with law enforcement and you have a misdemeanor warrant you will not be afforded this opportunity.
The amnesty program will end at midnight on Dec. 31.
