KILLEEN, Texas (March 23, 2023) – The Killeen Municipal Court cleared 130 warrants and handled 61 defendants during the recent two-week roundup period, collecting a total value of $72,982.44 including $4,304 cleared through jail credit and $965 through community service.
After offering warrant forgiveness during the month of December 2022, requesting that citizens with outstanding warrants go to the courthouse without fear of being arrested and waiving all additional warrant fees (not the fines), the court began the warrant roundup.
The court first provided six months of warnings for those who were on the active warrant list to clear their names. From Feb. 27 - March 10, the Killeen Police Department then actively sought out those who had failed to take action to clear their warrants.
“I consider the program a success from start to finish,” Judge Kris Krishna said. “After releasing the warrant roundup list in June of 2022, many heeded our warnings and took actions to clear their warrants during our warrant forgiveness period. Through our partnership with the Police Department, we were able to clear another 130 warrants during our roundup period. While some of those were arrests, many were able to clear their names on-line or in person.”
