ST. LOUIS - The recent Justice Department report on court practices in Ferguson was top of mind during a Warrant Amnesty day at Florissant Valley Community college at Forest Park Saturday.
People with misdemeanor arrest warrants were allowed to pay a fine, go to court and avoid jail time
Better Family Life is behind the effort. They launched the Amnesty Project in 2005.
Organizers hope recent findings by the justice department will eliminate the need.
There is another amnesty day on Wednesday from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. at St. Louis Community College Florissant Valley.
