An amnesty day is planned to serve veterans in our community.  It is an opportunity for veterans with traffic, misdemeanor, ordinance or felony warrants to be able to come to the Madison County Courthouse without fear of being arrested.  In addition to having the warrants set aside, veterans may arrange to pay outstanding fines or receive a new court date.

The program does not apply to federal warrants or civil contempt citations.  Veterans must bring a photo identification and DD-214 form to the courthouse to qualify.  You can make an appointment or get more information by calling 296-4472.
