St. Louis Municipal Courts Offers Warrant Amnesty Program March 4th-6th 2019

Outstanding Warrants Will Be Forgiven With Certain Exceptions

February 14, 2019 | 2 min reading time

St. Louis City Municipal Court will host a warrant amnesty program from Monday, March 4 through Wednesday, March 6. During this period, the Municipal Court will forgive outstanding warrants for all City ordinance violations, excluding DUI, leaving the scene of an accident, and charges related to prostitution.

Participants taking advantage of the Amnesty Program can speak with customer service to resolve outstanding payments and warrants without penalty.

Once warrants have been resolved, defendants will get a new court date or be placed on a payment plan. No defendants will be arrested in court during amnesty.

“The City of St. Louis has a large number of 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,” City Court Administrator Richard Torack said.

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., with extended hours on Monday, March 4 and Tuesday, March 5, 2019 until 7 p.m.

Customer Service can be reached at 314-622-3231

Participants should bring a valid photo identification with their name. There is no processing fee to participate. Any person can check to see whether they have a case, the status of their case,
and whether it is in warrant status online at https://www.municourt.net/.

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