Amnesty at Baker Court
The City Court of Baker, Baker City Court Judge Kirk A. Williams and Baker City Marshal Carl K. Dunn will provide an amnesty period for all of February to any Baker City Court defendant who has an outstanding bench warrant issued before Feb. 1.
The bench warrant will be recalled without first paying the normal bench warrant recall fee, a news release said.
The defendant will be given a new court date and additional time to pay any outstanding fees. The program does not reduce the fees.
The clerk’s office will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. to help.
Call the court at (225) 778-1866 or the Baker Police Department at (225) 775-6000 during the same hours to find out if you have an outstanding warrant in Baker.
Defendants who have received proper amnesty are excluded from the program.
