Amnesty week offers way to skip late fees on past-due court fines

URBANA — Residents who have run afoul of the law in Champaign County and owe the government money because of it should take note of the chance to pay fines without fees and interest. Circuit Clerk Katie Blakeman is offering an amnesty week from Sept. 10 through 14. Residents who have unpaid traffic tickets or past due fines and fees in criminal cases can avoid paying the collection fees and interest for those five days only if they pay the total amount originally ordered in their cases. By law, when a defendant in a traffic, driving under the influence or criminal case does not pay fines and court costs by the date ordered by the judge, additional interest and collection fees can be charged.
