Until Saturday, Nov. 17 at 11:59 p.m., the City of Houston Municipal Courts Department will discount certain delinquent cases to help individuals save money while they resolve their cases. Any defendant who voluntarily appears at any municipal court location during the amnesty period will be permitted to resolve all of their eligible delinquent cases, including failure to appear cases, and will not be subject to arrest. Cases eligible for amnesty include cases that were delinquent prior to Sept. 1, 2018. The amnesty program does not apply to a defendant that is in custody, previously adjudicated cases, parking citations, administrative violations, bond forfeitures or civil cases. Individuals may call the Houston Helpline by dialing 3-1-1 or 713-837-0311 for questions about whether their specific case(s) is amnesty eligible.
