Did you hear the one about the Invisible Man who had a warrant out for his arrest?  The charge - Failure to Appear.

All kidding aside, having an active warrant is not a good thing. Getting that cleared off your record is something you should try to take care of as soon as possible.  Right now, the Lufkin Municipal Court has a great program to do just that.

From now through April 30, 2022, the Court is offering a warrant amnesty program for area residents. Anyone with an active outstanding warrant through the court is encouraged to take this opportunity to get a fresh start and to possibly save some money in the process.  Don't worry about getting arrested when you come to pay, anyone that comes to the clerk’s office to take care of their outstanding warrants will be given safe harbor.

Here are the details on how to save some stress and money.  All warrant fees will be removed when a citizen voluntarily contacts the court to pay a minimum of one half the total amount due and start a payment plan for the balance owed.  As an added incentive, anyone that pays in full will also save an additional 20% off the fine amount. The percentage savings is only on the fine, not the court costs.

The court will also offer assistance to those individuals that may not be able to pay half down or pay in full and will work out an agreeable action plan for anyone that is willing to make the effort to come in and clear up their warrants.
