City Court of Baker to provide an amnesty program Feb. 3 through Feb. 28


City of Baker Sign

The City Court of Baker, Baker City Court Judge Kirk Williams and Baker City Marshal Carl Dunn will provide an amnesty program Feb. 3 through Feb. 28 to any defendant who has an outstanding bench warrant issued prior to Feb. 1, 2020.

As a part of the program, the bench warrant will be recalled without first paying the normal bench warrant “recall fee.” According to a recent press release, each defendant will be given a new court date and additional time to pay any outstanding fees. However, the amnesty program does not reduce any outstanding fees.

The clerk’s office will be open from 8:30 a.m. until 4:15 p.m. to assist defendants in recalling the bench warrants.

To find out if you have an outstanding warrant, call 225-778-1866 or 225-775-6000. The Baker City Court is located at 1320 Alabama St. in Baker, LA.
