Veterans with outstanding warrants will get a day of amnesty next month in Madison County.
Any veteran with a traffic, misdemeanor, ordinance or felony warrant may appear and have the warrant set aside starting at 1 p.m. Friday, Sept. 12.
Veterans with outstanding warrants will be able to meet with prosecutors, receive a new court date and/or arrange to pay outstanding fines.
"We are pleased to provide this service to veterans in assisting them with warrants without fear of arrest and in resolving their cases," said Madison County State's Attorney Tom Gibbons
Pro bono attorneys, prosecutors, judges and the Veterans Assistance Commission will be on hand to help handle the cases. Each veteran must bring photo identification and the DD-214 form to receive services. VAC can assist veterans on site with obtaining DD-214 forms from the Department of Defense.
To pre-register, veterans should call 296-4472. To obtain a copy of the DD-214, they should call the VAC at 296-4554.
The Amnesty Day will take place in Courtroom 103 in the Madison County Courthouse, 155 N. Main Street, Edwardsville.
