NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) -- North Las Vegas Municipal Court begins a ticket amnesty program Wednesday that'll offer 50 percent off on total fines for qualifying traffic and misdemeanor cases. That includes any added warrant fees.
Court Administrator Debbie Miller says in a statement that judges want to provide an opportunity in tough economic times for people to fulfill their court obligations.
The program will be for a limited time, but no end date has been picked.
A similar program went for more than 90 days two years ago, and reaped about $500,000 in unpaid fines.
She says people should call the court or check the Web site for more information.
