Laredo Municipal Court

LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - Laredo Municipal Court Judge Rosie Cuellar said she’s seen approximately 100 people per day for the ongoing amnesty.

A program that started Monday will continue until next Friday. It allows people who have outstanding warrants to settle their debts without fear or arrest.

“You have individuals who want to get ahead,” said Cuellar. “They can't get a license and obviously if you don't have a license you can't get a job.”

Linda Meza said she accumulated $9 thousand in fines over 12 years. She came to the court to settle for $3 thousand.

“I was scared,” said Meza. “But in reality they are helping out a lot. And what they say that they won't arrest you is true.”

Cuellar said in April the city would begin a warrant roundup effort. She encourages people with outstanding fines to appear at the court before the amnesty period ends.
