 Starting March 15th , the Pulaski County Circuit Court will be granting amnesty to those who have outstanding warrants for failure to pay court fines. Over 2,000 people who have warrants for the offense must actually pay their fine, but can avoid additional penalties.

People with warrants can go to the Circuit Clerk’s office to clear their name “and by doing this,” says Pulaski County Circuit Judge Vann Smith, “the arrest warrant will be recalled. So they won't have to worry about a traffic stop where there's an outstanding warrant on them and being arrested.”

Working building an expansion to the Pulaski County Detention Center has been finished and inmates are being moved in this week.

Wednesday afternoon, KUAR’s Kezia Nanda got a look at the facility.  You can listen to her report above.

The facility has offices for deputies, a visitation room, classroom and six large cells, each with 40 beds and a bathroom.

Sheriff Doc Holladay said the expansion was financed by Pulaski County’s general fund without taxes being raised.
