2005 Speeding ticket, went to court they said there was nothing in the system, now they want me to pay?
In 2005 I was driving to my parents house from college, it was late in the morning about 2am. Well I had to use the bathroom really bad so i was trying to get to anexit, and a cop nailed me for going 24 mph over. So i go to municipal court on my court date, and they never call my name with the roll call thing, so i walked outside and spoke to the person at the window with the computer, and she typed in my info, and told me there was no record of that county giving me a fine/speeding ticket. So i asked her what to do, she told me to concider myself lucky that this happens rarely. So i followed her advise and left, well. So then in 2008 i had to renew my licenses, went to the DMV, it never came up, now im sure if by that point i had a warrent for unpaid ticket they would have it in the computer, but no, i renewed and left. This past summer i left my licenses on a plane, and I went to the DMV today, and they told me I had an unpaid ticket from JAN 2005 that was never paid! And that has to be cleared up before they can issue me another drivers licenses. I called the courthouse and they informed me that the ticket was 351 dollars. I didnt ask anything or tell them about it, i simply said ok and left. This is really tough for me now because I was laid off from my job recently, and 351 dollars will kill me right now. I have a close friend who is a lawyer, should i get him to help me out? How should i go about resolving this?
