Missouri Supreme Court Eases Penalty for Those Not Able to Afford Fines

January 8, 2015

The Supreme Court orders municipal courts to consider income when people are unable to pay and paves the way for appointment of attorneys for indigent defendants. Another victory for our region, especially the poor, brought about by the ongoing partnership between SLU Law and ArchCity Defenders. 

And another great editorial by Tony Messenger who has been all over this topic since the beginning.
