In honor of the holiday month, the Lynnwood Municipal Court will be offering a Warrant Amnesty Program for individuals with outstanding warrants. Between December 1 and December 31 the court will allow individuals to clear their warrants without paying a warrant recall fee. If you have an outstanding warrant for DUI or another crime, our defense attorney may be able to help you seek amnesty.
There are many ways in which people may be issued warrants for DUI. Whether you failed to show up for your hearing, did not follow court-ordered requirements, or didn't pay court fines, a warrant can significantly impact your life in a negative way. Warrants can haunt you and may make it impossible for you to move on with your life. Even if you relocate or try to ignore it, the consequences of your outstanding warrant could catch up to you and result in much more serious penalties.
Rather than go through this trouble, it is in your best interest to take advantage of this offer of amnesty. If you are interested you can call the Lynwood Municipal Court at (425) 670-5100 or visit the court's website at lynnwoodwa.gov to see if you have an outstanding warrant. Individuals with warrants relating to assault charges or offenses with a sexual motivation are not eligible for the amnesty program.
In order to clear your warrant, you need only visit the Lynnwood Municipal Court Clerk's office and schedule a court appearance. The clerk will recall your warrant and schedule a date for you to appear in court, at which time you can request amnesty. When you arrive at the court clerk's office, you must provide the court with a valid picture ID and current contact information.
