DA's Office Offers Hot Check Amnesty Program

The Smith County District Attorney's office is offering amnesty for first time hot check offenders, if you pay the amount you owe on all outstanding checks, plus DA and merchant's fees.

The deadline is November 19 at 6:30 p.m. If you have questions, call the Hot Check Division at 903-535-0844.

Anyone who hasn't paid by the deadline will have a warrant out for his arrest.
