The 64A District Court in Ionia will have a bench warrant amnesty period from November 18, 2019 to January 3, 2020.
Individuals with open bench warrants for failing to pay fines and costs, failure to appear or failure to comply with court orders can clear their warrants merely by presenting themselves to the 64A District Court probation department during regular business hours, 8:30am to 5pm on weekdays.
Upon turning themselves in, those persons behind on fines and costs will be allowed to resume a payment schedule. Those persons who have missed court dates will be given new dates. The bench warrant(s) will then be cancelled and the defendant will be free to leave.
Persons with active bench warrants should be aware that this extends only to the Ionia District Court. Warrants from other courts are still valid and may result in arrest.
