If you have a municipal warrant with the City of Joplin, you can get amnesty on Friday (5/18). The Joplin Municipal Court will offer amnesty to those who come to the Municipal Court between 9:30am and 3:30pm on Friday with their city warrants. Municipal Court Judge John Podleski tells News Talk KZRG about the amnesty program.
“We allow them to come in, encourage them to come in. Their warrants will be recalled so nobody will be taken into custody on a Joplin municipal warrant on Friday if they come in.”
Podleski says this is a way to clear the Municipal Court’s case load. Joplin Municipal Court is located at 303 East 3rd Street.
