If you have outstanding warrants in Grandview Missouri, March 8, 2013 is the day to take care of them. From 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. today, Grandview will have an Amnesty Day which means that anyone with outstanding warrants may go to Court & have those warrants removed.
In addition, Grandview Municipal Court is going to waive all non-appearance fees. This is huge. Say you have four outstanding warrants in Grandview. In order for those warrants to be recalled and put on a docket, you would either have to pay a $25 per ticket failure to appear fee or post a bond which could be as high as $2000.00. But today, you just have to appear & they will pull the warrant and not charge a failure to appear fee.
For many people, you will be able to go to Grandview, have the warrant pulled & plead guilty to the Judge all at the same time. Or the Judge or Clerk will put it on a docket for the future.
It may be tempting to just go ahead and pay the fine and be done with the tickets but it also could cause damage to your driving record. For instance a Driving While Suspended is twelve points. If you plead guilty to it, then that will trigger a license suspension. So you can dispose of the case today if you like but be smart about it.
You can call the clerk at 816-316-4837 to find out about your outstanding warrants or just go by the Court at 200 Main St. in Grandview. The City has also posted a list of all outstanding warrants.
