People with outstanding misdemeanor warrants for their arrest because of a failure to appear in court will get a second chance on Dec. 18–22 from 8 a.m. to noon, according to a release from the City of Auburn.
Individuals who failed to appear at an initial hearing on an outstanding traffic citation or misdemeanor or at any subsequent compliance hearing for payment, completion of counseling or another court-ordered requirement can appear at the Auburn Municipal Court during this time without being arrested.
Those who missed an initial hearing or trial will be given a subpoena for a court date. Those who missed a compliance hearing following their conviction will be given the opportunity to sign up for a payment plan or community service and will be given a new court date.
People charged with anything other than failure to appear and have not been arrested on those charges will be subject to arrest. No one will be arrested for not paying fines or court costs, but no one will be exempt from paying.
People unsure about their status can search for their name on the city's list of people with outstanding warrants.
