St. Louis City extends hours to clear non-violent warrants

ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR) - Beginning Monday, October 17, St. Louis City will beef up its staff at the Municipal Court on Market Street. The city is giving those with outstanding, non-violent warrants a chance to clear them, for free.

City officials estimate more than 51,000 people account for 130,000 outstanding cases. So for the next two weeks, people can reschedule court dates for warrants for failing to appear in court. The city warns if a warrant is not cleared up and you get pulled over, you could be arrested.

If you're uncertain of a warrant's status, you can check it at This website, set up by the city, allows you to search by name, ticket or license number, etc.

While you can check the warrant's status online, you cannot reschedule. That must be done in person. See dates and times below.

The city says it will not recall warrants for DWI's or leaving the scene of an accident.

Anyone with those can post bond during the two-week period without fearing arrest.
