ST. LOUIS, Mo. ( – Starting at 9 a.m. Monday, 17 local cities are working with a community organization to give residents a chance to clear outstanding bench warrants for minor violations or old offenses.

The annual St. Louis Metropolitan Amnesty Program is being held this year virtually with help from the Better Family Life. Under the program, it will allow you to set a new court date. Once the process has been completed, a voucher will be issued and it can be taken to the municipality to get the warrant dropped for a fee.

You will have until 11:50 p.m. Friday to participate.

“Those that have low-level warrants have a difficult time gaining employment and taking care of their day-to-day chores; everyone deserves a second chance,” said Tyrone Turner, Vice President of Better Family Life.
