Ferguson Commission Urges Nixon
To Sign Municipal Court Reform Bill
Rev. Starsky Wilson and Rich McClure, Co-Chairs of the Ferguson Commission, have issued a statement urging Governor Nixon to sign Senate Bill 5, which deals with municipal court reform. The reforms in the bill are in response to public outcry against what has been seen as systemic injustices in municipal court practices. They also reflect the findings of the Commission’s working group on municipal courts and governance, which is co-chaired by Commissioner Traci deVon Blackmon and Commissioner T.R. Carr, Jr. The bill specifically addresses court actions regarding outstanding warrants, excessive fines and confinement for minor non-traffic related municipal ordinance violations.« Previous Entries
