New! Amnesty Program April 1 – May 31
Jackson’s 12th District Court is offering this program to provide relief for individuals that have a warrant for their arrest for failure to pay fines and costs and for certain other cases where monies are owed.
Here's how it works and what you should know about amnesty:
- It's FREE to search to see if you are eligible.
- For those who qualify, the program provides a 20% reduction in the total amount due.
- Once the court verifies full payment, the arrest warrant is cancelled by the end of the next business day (when appropriate).
- Click the amnesty button above to see if you are eligible and how much you can save!
Traffic Ticket? You could get your charge changed to one with no or fewer driver's license points. And you can do it online rather than going to court.
Warrant? Search to see if you have a warrant. Follow the directions on this site to help you resolve your warrant so you can get in the clear.
How is it different online than in court?
It's not. Your case is reviewed, and a final decision is made by the magistrate.
Why does the court allow online case negotiation?
We all make mistakes, and the court is there to listen to you and help you resolve your case. For Traffic cases, If you have a good driving record, the magistrate and police officer may be willing to give you a lesser charge that does not add points to your license. Please note while the charge may not add points to your license some charges may still appear on your driving record. For Warrant cases, the court has created this site to provide you clear instructions on how to take care of your obligations.
How are payments made?
Payments can only be made with a credit or debit card. If you do not have a credit or debit card you will not be able to use the on-line case negotiation. Please note there may be processing fees for processing your payment.
