New judge announces changes to Ferguson municipal court

(KTRS) – Big changes coming to Ferguson’s city court.

The new municipal judge says he is making the changes to restore confidence in the system and ease the burden on needy defendants. The changes include withdrawing many old arrest warrants as well as giving defendants new court dates or payment options.

The previous municipal judge resigned in March after a U.S. Justice Department report said Ferguson’s municipal court system often targeted blacks, who make up two-thirds of Ferguson’s residents.
