BULLHEAD CITY – Amnesty Day was held at the Bullhead City Municipal Court on February 24 and was a success for the many citizens who took advantage of this opportunity.
At the end of business, the Court quashed 37 warrants, 51 individuals were in non-compliance and reestablished a payment plan prior to a warrant being issued and 50 individuals driving privileges were reinstated.
“The Court was busy all day and I am extremely proud of our team who did an amazing job,” stated City Magistrate Pete Psareas. “I am happy we had the opportunity to help people with a second chance and improve public trust. I know there was some skepticism from the public, but out of the 80 plus people who were seen zero were taken into custody.”
The court hopes to have the opportunity to hold another Amnesty Day in the future.
