AG Announces Voluntary Surrender Program

Yes­ter­day, Ohio Attor­ney Gen­eral Mike DeWine announced a “Safe Sur­ren­der” event at the Trin­ity Gospel Tem­ple in Can­ton. Any­one with any kind of mis­de­meanor or low-level felony war­rant can now come to the church any time after noon Sept. 30 through Oct. 3 and turn them­selves in. The inno­v­a­tive pro­gram aims to help reduce the chance of poten­tially dan­ger­ous encoun­ters between police and fugi­tives. The Attor­ney Gen­eral said on Tues­day, that by turn­ing them­selves in, those peo­ple with out­stand­ing, non-violent war­rants will have the chance to move their lives for­ward with­out hav­ing to worry that law enforce­ment is look­ing for them. He noted how­ever, that amnesty for offenses is not an option, but he did allude to favor­able con­sid­er­a­tion from pros­e­cu­tors and the courts for those who accept responsibility.
