SC county lets people clear warrants

  • Follow Latest News

COLUMBIA  — People in one South Carolina county are getting the chance to clear up any outstanding low-level charges and get a clean slate.

Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott is teaming up with the local magistrate's office beginning today to allow people facing traffic or magistrate-level warrants to have an appearance before a judge and settle their charges.

Lott says most people will likely be able to go home the same day they choose to come forward.

Fresh Start runs through Friday.
