Ferguson seems to have a breathe of fresh air going through the city as of now. The city’s newly appointed municipal judge Donald McCullin announced on August 24 that all arrest warrants issued prior to December 31, 2014 will be terminated.
“These changes should continue the process of restoring confidence in the Court, alleviating fears of the consequences of appearing in Court, and giving many residents a fresh start,” said McCullin.
McCullin will also be re-issue suspended driver’s licenses, which were originally cancelled by Ferguson’s Director of Revenue.
There also will be new court dates and payment options implemented.
It’s a relief to see changes taking place within Ferguson especially with the controversy over the last judge to serve and his interactions with African Americans. He resigned after a justice department report that claimed the court was apart of “unlawful bias,” which other Ferguson officials agreed with.
