Marshal’s office offers amnesty

DENHAM SPRINGS The Denham Springs Marshal’s Office is giving defendants with outstanding warrants 35 days to avoid arrest by paying their fines and court costs.

The amnesty program applies only to warrants issued by the City Court of Denham Springs, Marshal Jerry Denton Jr.

Defendants must appear voluntarily, pay their fines and, in most cases, a $35 bond fee for a new court date, he said. Once a new court date has been issued, the outstanding warrant will be recalled.

Outstanding fines can be paid online at www.dsmarshal.org or by calling (800) 701-8560. Payments also can be made by cash or money order at the Marshal’s Office, 398 Mayor Herbert Ave.
