Thousands Attend Warrant Wednesdays
Thousands attended Warrant forgiveness Wednesdays in Milwaukee County.
According to Chief Court Administrator, there were 15,848 defendants' cases checked in.
This was all part of a program created by the city's three municipal court judges to help people get back on the right track.
The judges said they wanted people who were afraid to come forward because of outstanding warrants to begin working with the system.
People were still responsible for any fines, and building and zoning code violations will be heard on a case by case basis.
There were 4,023 cases where warrants were withdrawn and 4,270 cases where an installment payment plan was set up.
