(KTVI) - Do you have an outstanding traffic or misdemeanor warrant for your arrest? If so, take a deep breath because help is on the way.  The 4th Annual St. Louis Metropolitan area Amnesty Project is Saturday, August 2nd.

St. Louis Police Chief Sam Dotson along with James Clark of Better Family Life tell us more about the program and who qualifies.

The vouchers cost $10 for processing.  Offenders will need to take the voucher and one hundred dollars bond to the court to secure a new court date.  Frequently the one hundred dollars will cover the fines and court costs for numerous violations.

But Clark reminds participants, “Citizens are responsible for all fines, all court costs and all other things that came  in with that initial traffic warrant or that misdemeanor warrant.”

For more information about the program call  314-381-8200.

The dates are:

  • Saturday, Aug. 2 at St. Louis Community College at Meramec
  • Wednesday, Aug. 6 at St. Louis Community College at Florissant Valley; 
  • Saturday, Aug. 9 at St. Louis Community College at Forest Park. 
  • Each session will run from 7 am to 7 pm.
