SUPERIOR — Douglas County will host a warrant resolution event from 9-11 a.m. April 12 in room 270 of the Government Center. Staff from Douglas County District Attorney’s Office and Clerk of Courts Office will be available to meet with defendants, get their warrants quashed and cases rescheduled. Some cases could be resolved entirely at the event.

There are currently 871 outstanding warrants in Douglas County, according to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office website.

“Whether it is being arrested on the warrant by law enforcement or coming in voluntarily to clear it up, warrants are eventually going to be dealt with one way or another,” said District Attorney Mark Fruehauf. “This is an opportunity for people with outstanding warrants to come in voluntarily, get the warrant quashed so it’s not continuing to hang over them, and walk out with a new court date or potentially even get the case wrapped up.”

The last warrant resolution day hosted by Douglas County took place in October 2018. Fruehauf said 20 warrants were cleared up and they were able to close a number of cases.
