MISSION — An amnesty period has already begun in the City of Mission. 

On November 1, the Mission Municipal Court began a special amnesty program which is scheduled to run through November 27. 

This amnesty period waives failure to appear and warrant fees, while fines must be paid in full.

“Amnesty is a tremendous benefit to the public because it allows them an opportunity to come in to the court to take care of their case without fear of being arrested and at the same time save some money,” Municipal Court Judge Jonathan Wehrmister said. 

Time windows to pay in person differ depending on the day: Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays are from 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m., while Tuesdays and Thursdays are from 8 a.m. to 6:45 p.m. 

“We urge our citizens to take advantage of this amnesty period,” Mayor Dr. Armando O’Caña said. 

Municipal warrants and outstanding tickets are just a few that can be taken care of during the amnesty period. 

“It is the perfect opportunity for people to pay unresolved tickets at a reduced rate and clear those outstanding warrants,” O’Caña said.
