The Lancaster County Attorney and the Lincoln City Attorney have designated Aug. 7-10 as "Warrant Week," a program that provides warrant forgiveness on outstanding warrants on misdemeanors in Lancaster County. To have a warrant forgiven, a person can appear at the Lancaster County Courthouse, 575 S. 10th Street, 2nd floor, at 10:30 a.m. or 2:30 p.m. Aug. 7-10 and request that: 
 
  1. a new court date be set for the case,
  2. the individual charged be released on their own recognizance, (meaning they won’t have to pay bail/bond and can still wait for the new court date outside of jail), and
  3. the bail/bond that was lost as a result of not showing up for court is refunded back to the individual.
 
Those with questions should contact:
 
Lincoln City Attorney: (402) 441-6875
Lancaster County Attorney: (402) 441-7321
Lancaster County Courthouse: (402) 441-7291
 
Active warrants can be located at: lincoln.ne.gov
 
Undocumented immigrants or individuals with a pending deportation order should be extra cautious about the warrant week process. Before participating in warrant week, please consult with an attorney specializing in criminal defense and immigration law and know your rights! https://www.wehaverights.us.

These cards provide tips for interacting with police and understanding your rights on the ACLU logo-side of the card. On the other side, the card informs the police, FBI or ICE agent that you are asserting your Fifth Amendment right to remain silent and your Fourth Amendment right against an illegal search and seizure. The police, ICE, and FBI must treat us all fairly, regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin or religion. 
 
This card is Nebraska-law specific. For a similar card in your state, please contact your local ACLU affiliate or order cards from the Immigrant Legal Resource Center at https://www.ilrc.org/red-cardsSpecial thanks to the Immigrant Legal Resource Center who created this resource.
