Digital First: “I hope people take advantage of the amnesty period”


VICKSBURG, Miss. (WJTV) – The City of Vicksburg will host an amnesty period for people with past due fines.

If you owe past due fines and a contempt of court warrant has been issued for your arrest, you can avoid jail time and have your warrant dismissed if you pay the fine at the Vicksburg Municipal Court.

“I do hope that people will take advantage of this program during this period of time,” said Judge Angela Carpenter. “Again, it’s easy to do. Just come down here. Have your money. Pay in full. We can’t accept any half payments. No partial payments, in this case.”

The amnesty period will be from February 2, 2020, to April 30, 2020. For more information, you can contact court services at 601-631-3742.
