Muni court sets Safe Harbor Day for June 22

Staff Writer

The Ottawa County Municipal Court will conduct a Safe Harbor Day June 22 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Persons with outstanding warrants from the court will have a chance to address their legal issues without immediately going to jail.
Some examples of individuals who can participate include:
-Those who failed to attend a court hearing will be seen by Judge Louis Wargo or a magistrate and have an opportunity to enter a plea or having their hearing rescheduled.
- Those who failed to complete court-ordered evaluations or programs will be allowed to re-engage in treatment with the appropriate monitoring by the court’s probation department.
-Individuals who failed to perform community service will be given the opportunity to reschedule the completion date.
-Individuals who did not attend a payment status hearing will meet with the judge or magistrate to review their financial status and establish a new payment plan.
-Individuals who did not report to serve a jail sentence will be issued a new date to report.
Warrants will be lifted and recalled from law enforcement for those reporting to the court on Safe Harbor Day.
Gail Miller, clerk of court, said this is the first time the municipal court has tried a Safe Harbor Day.
The court is located at 1860 E. Perry St., Port Clinton.
