Kingman court offers second chance to those with active warrants

KINGMAN - Why wait until you're arrested to throw yourself on the mercy of the court when you can get a stay out of jail free card?

That's the deal Kingman Municipal Court is offering through the end of April to people with outstanding warrants, according to the Kingman Police Department.

"In an effort to reduce the number of active warrants, the Kingman Municipal Court will publish all warrants during the months of March and April," said Sgt. David Reif in an email. "During those months, any person with an active warrant will not be taken to jail if they voluntarily appear."

According to the court, there are more than 1,500 active misdemeanor warrants on file, most from 2007 to the present.

The warrants are for relatively minor offenses such as failure to appear, failure to pay fines, fees or restitution, and failure to comply with other court orders.

"We want to encourage individuals who may be in fear of arrest and jail to come in during these months so they will no longer be looking over their shoulders," said Reif in his email. "This is the opportunity to make a new commitment to taking care of business."

The court will list today the names of people with outstanding warrants on the city's website, www.cityofkingman.gov and on the county court website, www.mohavecourts.az.gov.

The list will be updated as new warrants are issued.

Those with warrants can go to Kingman Municipal Court, 219 N. Fourth St., from 1 to 4 p.m. Wednesdays. Walk-ins also will be accepted from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Thursdays and from 9 to 11 a.m. Fridays.
