BAKER, LA (WAFB) -

Officials in Baker are offering an amnesty program in April. Any Baker City Court defendant with an outstanding bench warrant issued prior to April 3, 2017 can get the warrant recalled without paying the normal recall fee.

The amnesty program will not reduce outstanding fees, but will allow defendants some time to come up with money to pay their fees before their new court date.

The program begins on April 3, 2017 and will continue through April 28, 2017. 

The court will have extended office hours of 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 18, Wednesday, April 19, Monday, April 24, and Thursday, April 27.

To find out if you have any outstanding warrants in Baker City Court, call (225) 778-1866 from 8:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. or the Baker Police Department at (225) 775-6000.
