“This one-time amnesty event is winding down this Friday. We have assisted 100s of folks pay off their past due court costs and fines, and at the same time assisting them to back their driver’s licenses and vehicle registration tags,” said Kettering Clerk of Court Rob Scott. “The program has been very successful so far. We are doing everything we can to alert everyone to take advantage of amnesty.”

To be eligible for amnesty 50% of court costs and fines must be paid in full and beyond the last 30 days ordered. Some restrictions to apply.

“Citizens are affected by the current economy and are still suffering from the pandemic,” said Montgomery County Clerk of Courts Mike Foley. “Hopefully this gives people the opportunity to get rid of this burden of court costs and fees and gives them a new start.”
