Fresh Start Warrant Forgiveness Program on Saturday, November 7th  

 

The District Attorney’s Office is pleased to announce another “Fresh Start” event. As you may recall, we held two of these in 2019.

 

Fresh Start is an innovative “warrant forgiveness” program that provides an opportunity for people with an outstanding warrant to resolve their warrant without being arrested. The program is designed to give those with active warrants stemming from non-violent and low-level misdemeanor or traffic cases an opportunity to move toward a resolution in their case. Individuals with warrants in qualifying cases will speak with representatives from the District Attorney’s Office and either resolve the case or set the case for a new court date. Participants avoid the possibility of an arrest and jail stay that can disrupt their lives, families, and employment. 

 

The event will be held at the Boulder County Justice Center and Longmont Courthouse on Saturday, November 7, 2020, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. 

 

The event does not require an appointment to be made in advance.

 

This program is a collaborative effort between the District Attorney’s Office, judges, criminal defense attorneys, immigration attorneys, probation staff, courthouse staff, and the Sheriff’s Office.  

Eligibility guidelines are posted on the District Attorney’s website:  www.bouldercounty.org/district-attorney/or call (303) 441-3700

 

Additionally, the District Attorney’s Office is proud to partner with the Public Rights Project to host a Fellow for the next two years.  

The District Attorney’s Office is one of the few in the country to be selected for this innovative program.  The Fellow will focus on wage theft, immigrant rights, and community engagement.  

With no cost to the taxpayers, it will allow us to enhance our robust efforts to protect our most vulnerable residents and immigrants from wage theft and abuse.
