Cook County Offering 'Amnesty Week' For Unpaid Court Costs

Cook County is offering a discount on outstanding court costs this week. 

During the so-called “amnesty week” people can pay overdue costs without paying the fees leveled by a collection agency. 

State law allows those agencies to charge up to 30 percent of the original balance.
