The Cleveland Heights Municipal Court Warrant Amnesty Day will allow individuals with misdemeanor traffic or criminal arrest warrants to return to the Court without being arrested in exchange for an agreement to complete and comply with any Court Orders.

Representatives from the Ohio Bureau Motor Vehicles, Cuyahoga County Job and Family Services, Legal Aid Society of Cleveland, and Ohio Means Jobs will also be present to assist individuals with driver’s license reinstatement, applying for financial, food, medical, and childcare assistance, expungement navigation, and workforce development and job training referrals.

Any individual with a misdemeanor warrant issued by the Cleveland Heights Municipal Court more than forty-five days before the Amnesty Day is eligible. Warrants for both traffic and criminal cases, warrants issued for the failure to appear, failure to pay fines and costs, and failure to comply with probation are all eligible. Felony warrants and warrants from other courts are not eligible for amnesty. Only the first 200 individuals may be seen, so be sure to come early.
