Do you owe fines to the City of Prescott or Nevada County? Would you like to reduce your fines by $250.00? Then please read this

By Judge Tony Yocom, 09/2/21 7:54 AM

You can get up to $250.00 of your fines completely charged off. The Nevada County District
Court is offering incentives for people who have been or get fully vaccinated against the Covid-19
virus. This virus is causing so many deaths and permanent damage to so many people, and we are
weary of reading the Obituaries about our friends and family members who have died as a result of this
disease. So many Arkansans remain unvaccinated. Arkansas has the fourth-highest number of new
cases per 100,000 people in the United States, and only 26 of Nevada County residents are vaccinated.
This has created a dangerous and scary situation.
There is so much false and misleading information on the internet about the vaccination, and
too many people are only paying attention to this information to make their decision not to get
vaccinated. Please read this excellent information from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) about the
myths and misinformation about the Covid-19 vaccination here:
https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/facts.html. Also read information from the
Arkansas Department of Health about Covid-19 in Arkansas here:
https://www.healthy.arkansas.gov/programs-services/topics/novel-coronavirus. We encourage you to
get vaccinated as soon as possible. The vaccination is completely free to all people. Call your pharmacy
or Nevada County Health Unit to get an appointment to get your vaccination now.
As an incentive to get the vaccination, if you currently owe fines to the City of Prescott or to
Nevada County, we will charge off $250.00 of your fines if you show us proof that you have been fully
vaccinated (received both of the Moderna or Pfizer shot, or the single Johnson & Johnson shot). Or, if
you have received a Citation and will be coming to Court or wish to pay your fine before your Court
date, call the Court Clerk’s office at (870)887-6016 for information about what you need to do to get
this incentive. When you have sent your proof of having been vaccinated to the Clerk’s office, we will
write off one half of your potential fines up to $250.00.
In order to receive this incentive, you can do one of these things:
(a) Take a picture of your vaccination card with your cellphone and email it to
nevadacountydc@gmail.com. Include your full name as it appears on your driver’s license, along with
your telephone number and date of birth, in the email.
(b) Take your vaccination card to the Nevada County District Court’s office, which is
located at the Nevada County Courthouse, and show it to one the Clerks.
(c) Fax a copy of your vaccination card to (870)887-3244. Include your full name as it
appears on your driver’s license, along with your telephone number and date of birth, in the fax.
(d) Mail a copy of your vaccination card to Nevada County District Court, Nevada County
Courthouse, 215 East Second Street, Prescott, AR 71857, along with your full name as it appears on
your driver’s license, your telephone number and date of birth.
This incentive will begin immediately and will continue indefinitely while Covid-19 remains a
problem and so many of our Nevada County residents remain unvaccinated. If you have questions
about this incentive program, call the Nevada County District Court at (870)887-6016. Please get
vaccinated and help save your life and the lives of your loved ones!
