Tishomingo County to announce AMNESTY PROGRAM


 

 Traffic-Amnesty-eAlert 2 WEEK.jpg

***UPDATE: March 15, 2016 - Tishomingo County Sheriff John Daugherty would like to remind everyone to get their fines took care of during this AMNESTY period.  The Justice Court office is seeing some great results and we would like for everyone to be able to get their fines took care of!  Remember, we have just 2 weeks left before the AMNESTY PROGRAM is concluded*** 

 


 

In an effort to clear a backlog of old fines and warrants that are owed to the Tishomingo County, the Tishomingo County Justice Court, will be offering an AMNESTY PROGRAM during the month of March.

This AMNESTY PROGRAM will pertain to OLD FINES ONLY.  The purpose of this program is to provide relief to individuals who may have found themselves in violation of a court ordered obligation because they were financially unable to pay fines.

This program will also allow officers to focus on recent cases and allow individuals to avoid further penalties and possible incarceration.

Program Details:

  • The Program will run from March 1, 2016 through April 1, 2016
  • It will cover any old fine balances that have been previously set by the court or any old fines remaining PRIOR to March 1, 2016
  • Anyone with outstanding fines can come in and resume payments or schedule a new payment plan
  • Anyone taking advantage of this program will have arrest warrants for "FAILURE TO PAY" "FAILURE TO APPEAR" rescinded
  • Individuals who voluntarily appear at the Tishomingo County Justice Court to address delinquent fines or warrants for "FAILURE TO PAY" and "FAILURE TO APPEAR" will not be arrested
  • It is very important to remember that under this program there are two qualifying factors for AMNESTY
  • INDIVIDUALS MUST HAVE COURT ORDERED OBLIGATIONS THAT WERE INCURRED PRIOR TO MARCH   1, 2016
  • INDIVIDUALS MUST COME IN VOLUNTARILY

 

The judges and court administrators have agreed that this AMNESTY PROGRAM will allow people who have fallen behind on their payments or have failed to pay as previously agreed to by court order to make good on their payments and NOT be subject to being held in "Contempt of Court" for nonpayment.

This is a limited and unique opportunity offered by the county and the municipalities within the county. Sheriff John D. Daugherty would like to take this opportunity to encourage those individuals that have outstanding fines and warrants for "Failure to Pay" to take advantage of this. Even with the AMNESTY PROGRAM in place, the Tishomingo County Sheriff's Department and the officers with the respective police departments in the county will continue to aggressively serve warrants for outstanding fines.

It is in the best interest of those with warrants for unpaid fines to come in voluntarily. Sheriff Daugherty states, "We understand that there are those who may have had difficulty in paying their fines in the past..and that is why the AMNESTY PROGRAM has been brought back, but YOU have to come YOURSELF and take care of it between March 1, 2016 and April 1, 2016".

All fines MUST BE PAID Monday through Friday from 8am until 5pm.  Individuals may pay with CASH or MONEY ORDERS.  Any individual wishing to see if they have any OUTSTANDING FINES in Tishomingo County may do so my calling the Tishomingo County Justice Court at (662) 423-7033.
