A bit of misinformation by our court administrator, if you have a “Non nightcap” warrant, you can only be arrested between 0800 and 2200 hours and not on Sunday unless on a public street or highway. Don’t believe me, look it up yourself, MN Criminal procedure rule 3.03.

CARLTON, Minn. –
On Thursday, August 25, the Carlton County criminal justice community is sponsoring a “warrant workout” event at the Carlton County Courthouse in Carlton.

The event will offer anyone with an outstanding arrest warrant in Carlton County, an opportunity to meet with justice system officials and take steps to resolve their case.

The event will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Visitors will be able to speak with public defenders and prosecuting attorneys, as well as to arrange to pay any outstanding fines.

“Having an outstanding arrest warrant can lead to a lot of headaches,” Carlton County Court Administrator, Amy Turnquist, said in a statement Monday, “Anyone with an active warrant can be arrested at anytime, and will often face at least a night in jail if arrested. By coming to this event, individuals with an outstanding warrant can meet directly with a judge and other officials, figure out how to begin resolving their case, and hopefully avoid facing arrest or other negative consequences down the road.”

Those interested in the event can call the Carlton County Court Administration at 218-384-9578 to verify their warrant status and to learn more about the event.

The Carlton County Courthouse is located at 301 Walnut Avenue in Carlton.
