ALERT: Three St. Louis residents have reported getting phone calls in a scam claiming that arrest warrants have been issued because they missed jury duty.

The callers, based in Texas, have used the names Steven Miller and James Wong. They tell the residents that they can avoid arrest by sending money.

Joanne Martin, jury supervisor for the St. Louis Circuit Court, says there is no such program and warns residents against responding to these fraudulent calls. She noted that a similar scam was attempted in March.

St. Louis residents in doubt about their status relating to a jury summons may call 314-622-4457 for clarification.

Jury Duty Summons Error


In 1828 the city of St. Louis opened its first courthouse. For more than 180 years Circuit Court has stood among the most storied and historically significant courts in America.

In 1850 a St. Louis jury granted Dred Scott, a Missouri slave, his freedom. That decision would eventually reach the United States Supreme Court and push the country into civil war.

Today, St. Louis Circuit Court conducts more than 300 jury trials a year (more than any other Missouri court), staffs a juvenile court and detention facility, operates a drug treatment court for nonviolent offenders and is active in public education through the city’s schools and community groups.

As it was in 1828, the Court remains committed to providing all people an open, fair, efficient, and independent system for the advancement of justice under the law and to efficiently and effectively carry out the duties bestowed upon us by the State of Missouri.
