Do you have outstanding warrants? St. Louis City Municipal Court will be hosting a warrant amnesty program Jan. 29 through Feb. 1.

The program 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.

Also, participants will be able to speak with customer service to resolve outstanding payments and warrants. Once the warrants have been resolved, a new court date may be scheduled or be reset on a new payment docket with a payment plan for those cases.

No defendants will be arrested in court during amnesty.

“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.

The program will be held at the St. Louis City Municipal Court at 1520 Market St. from 8 a.m. through 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Extended hours will be offered on Tuesday, Jan. 30 and Wednesday, Jan. 31 until 7 p.m.

Participants should bring a photo id with their name. There is no processing fee to participate.

You can check if you have a case, or the status of a case at www.municourt.net.

During the amnesty program, rescheduling a court day is free. However, if you miss the re-assigned court date, the cases will go back into warrant status and a bond will have to be posted.
