CLARKSDALE, Miss. (AP) - Clarksdale Municipal Judge Joe Gibbs is again offering an amnesty deal for citizens who have outstanding fines in city court.
The Clarksdale Press Register reports (http://bit.ly/1jxu8fn ) that the offer applies to anyone who has a warrant out for arrest or who is not currently paying anything on an outstanding fine.
As in years past, Gibbs says people who have fines may either pay the fine off in its entirety to the municipal court clerk and the warrant will be withdrawn.
Gibbs says a person could work out a payment schedule and then the warrant will be rescinded.
Gibbs says if people can prove they have no ability to pay, they can work off their fines.
The amnesty period wraps up April 15.
