St. Louis, MO (KTRS) A warrant amnesty program in the city of St. Louis kicked off on Monday.
This means the city will forgive outstanding warrants for all City ordinance charges, excluding DUIs, leaving the scene of an accident and prostitution. Participants will be allowed to pay original fines and costs without penalty. The program runs through Thursday.
“The City of St. Louis has more than 54,000 outstanding warrants. We encourage individuals who have not yet resolved a warrant to use this program as an opportunity to fulfill their obligations to the law without facing undue hardship,” said City Court Administrator Richard Torack.
Once the warrants have been resolved, defendants will get a new court date or be reset on a new payment docket with a payment plan for those cases that are assessed. No defendants will be arrested in court during amnesty.
The warrant amnesty program will be held at the St. Louis City Municipal Court at 1520 Market Street (enter off of 16th Street). The Court will be open from 8 a.m. through 5 p.m., Monday through Thursday. There will be extended hours on Tuesday, January 30 and Wednesday, January 31 until 7 p.m.
