New Judge To Take Over Ferguson Court System

FERGUSON, MISSOURI (WLNS) – In Missouri an appeals court judge is taking over Ferguson’s municipal courts.

Judge Roy Richter will hear all of Ferguson’s pending and future cases starting next week.

The move comes after a highly critical report by the Department of Justice which found more than 90 percent of people arrested by the police department are African American. There is also bias against black people who are less likely to have cases dismissed.
