Kent County District Courts to Waive Fees, Jail Time on Outstanding Tickets and Warrants in October
If you’ve got outstanding tickets or warrants, the Kent County District Courts are offering a new program next month that could help you avoid additional court fees and jail time.
MLive reports that the new waiver program is in effect Oct. 1- Oct. 31, 2017.
According to a release, Kent County officials say the program is for “anyone with outstanding criminal and/ or traffic warrants for non-compliance with a court order of fines, fees, court costs and any outstanding traffic and/ or parking tickets that have gone into default or suspension”
Those who make payment in full during that time will not be incarcerated. The courts will also waive all court-imposed late fees and/ or warrant fees, aside from the $45 License Suspension Reinstatement fee.
District Court Judge Williams G. Kelly said in the release, “This waiver program allows individuals with certain warrants and/or outstanding tickets an opportunity to start fresh with reasonable cost, while avoiding jail time and/or additional driver’s license sanctions.”
