35th District Court Launches Amnesty Program
Posted on 07/07/2021
35th District Court Launches Amnesty ProgramThe 35th District Court is hosting an amnesty program July 8-28 that lets citizens settle their court-ordered debts without further penalty or incarceration.
 
Included are all payable traffic civil infraction and misdemeanor tickets issued within the jurisdictions of Northville Township, Plymouth Township, Canton and the cities of Northville and Plymouth.
 
During the period of amnesty, the civil infraction ticket will be reduced to the original fine and/or cost plus the $45 driver’s license clearance fee, if applicable. Upon full payment, the Court will notify the Secretary of State to lift the suspension. The misdemeanor tickets will be reduced to the original fines and/or costs plus any mandated state costs.
 
Amnesty applies to those individuals who present themselves at the 35th District Court, 660 Plymouth Road, Plymouth, MI 48170. The Court is open Monday-Friday from 8:30 am to 4 pm.
 
Under the program, individuals with arrest warrants for failure to appear in Court on a civil infraction or misdemeanor will have their outstanding warrant cancelled. These individuals may come to Court without the fear of being arrested for their voluntary appearance.
This is a one-time effort to clear a backlog of cases. After the program, the court will continue to move more aggressively to enforce and collect on unpaid tickets, including all penalties and late fees.
 
Courts will accept cash, personal checks (with proper identification), money orders, or cashier’s checks. Online payments also can be made through the Court’s website  www.35thdistrictcourt.org and through https://payments.g2gcloud.com/DC35/1303 and includes the word “Amnesty” after the ticket or case number. No mail-in or telephone payments are accepted for this program.
 
Please contact the Court at (734) 459-4740 to verify the amount due or for additional information.
