The New Orleans Advocate "A chance at a new life: Warrants, some court fees slashed at second ‘Warrant Clinic’ in New Orleans" September 30, 2017 by Helen Freund It’s been more than 10 years since Anna Miller had a valid driver’s license. The 54-year-old mother of five has lived in constant fear of arrest for driving with a suspended license while facing a mountain of court-imposed fines and fees, the result of traffic attachments and warrants that just kept building up. “Nothing ever seemed to go away. You go back to court and you’re stuck with another attachment, another fine,” Miller said. “It’s discouraging.” A housekeeper by profession, she said she had no choice but to drive without a license from job to job in order to feed her family, despite the fear of being pulled over and maybe ending up in jail. “Whenever you’re stopped, you’re afraid of being arrested,” Miller said. “A lot of the jobs I applied for, I couldn’t get because I didn’t have a driver’s license.” But on Saturday morning, after getting her warrants lifted and contempt fees waived by a Municipal Court judge, things were starting to look up.
