Jersey Holds an Almost Get-Out-of-Jail-Free Event in Atlantic City

This Saturday non-violent fugitives in New Jersey will have an opportunity to turn themselves in at a safe surrender event in Atlantic City. Anyone with open warrants in New Jersey can show up and receive favorable treatment for cooperating with authorities. The idea is that in exchange for turning themselves in, the fugitives will likely receive probation or reduced fines. Jersey’s last such event was in November of 2010 and saw nearly 4,000 fugitives turn themselves in. [The Daily Journal]
