On Saturday, May 20, 2017, the Hennepin County criminal justice community is sponsoring Warrant Forgiveness Day at the Sabathani Community Center, 310 East 38th Street, Minneapolis. The event will offer anyone with an outstanding misdemeanor Hennepin County arrest warrant an opportunity to meet with justice system officials and take steps to resolve their cases. Walk-ins and appointments are available from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Participants in this one-day event have the opportunity to resolve their cases after meeting with a public defender and a prosecutor. Settlements for eligible misdemeanor warrants, without the risk of being arrested, may include:
- doing community service work at or near the event,
- getting time to pay a fine, or
- scheduling a court date in the future to handle or dispute the case.
By participating in this event, warrants will be cleared or resolved on the same day.
Those interested in the event may call Hennepin County District Court at (612) 348-2040 to verify their warrant status and to learn more about the event.
