Anyone with a warrant for a nonviolent ordinance violation is getting a break in St. Louis city.
Offenders can turn themselves in to the Municipal Court this week to receive a new court date on the spot instead of being booked into jail. From 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.this week, individuals who believe they have a warrant can go to the St. Louis City Municipal Court at 1520 Market Street to cancel warrants and get a new court date. The cost is $35 regardless of the number of warrants.
Warrant forgiveness is good only for City ordinance violations, including but not limited to truancy, nuisance, moving and non-moving violations. People with state charges or DUI/DWI charges are not eligible for warrant forgiveness. Other charges may have a reduced bond.
People can check whether they have a warrant out for their arrest by searching for their name, date of birth and zip code on the City Court's website.
