CITY OF WOODSTOCK MUNICIPAL COURT IS OFFERING AMNESTY IN THE MONTH OF MAY
May 2023 has been designated Amnesty Month by City of Woodstock Municipal Court. Those individuals who have delinquent tickets or have failed to appear in court on misdemeanor charges prior to May 2023 are eligible to be granted amnesty by the court.
“We understand that everyone has different circumstances,” said court officials. “By offering an amnesty month, we hope it will encourage individuals to resolve their case.”
Woodstock Municipal Court offered amnesty in April 2022 and the program was very successful. Like in 2022 this year, a defendant will be able to pay the cost of a citation, failure to appear charges will be dismissed, and arrest warrant fees will be waived in cases that are not a mandatory court appearance. If a defendant cannot pay the cost of the citation, they will be allowed to post the failure to appear fee and sign for a new court date to have the case placed back on the court calendar. If the case is a mandatory court appearance, the defendant will be allowed to post the warrant fee and sign for a new court date to have the case placed back on the court calendar. The offer of amnesty does not extend to probation warrants or felony cases.
Amnesty Month will end Wednesday, May 31st, 2023, at 5 p.m. Payments may be made in person at Woodstock Municipal Court, 12453 GA-92, Woodstock, Georgia, 30188, or by phone at 770-592-6025 opt. 9. Municipal Court Services is open Monday to Friday, 8am to 5pm.
