    Default Misuse of Lot / Loitering

    My question involves a traffic citation from the state of: Michigan

    I was in a parking lot for about an hour after going in and coming out, and the officer said basically I got a ticket for being in the parking lot without going in (and I didn't want to argue that I had gone in already but didn't buy anything).

    He basically said it's nothing, just a fee and gives no points, doesn't go on my record, etc.

    But I can't find anything about it online and so far it doesn't say anything about how much it costs.

    It is a civil infraction and has an appearance date -- but if I pay it do I have to go to that? It says I can mail it, but if I pay online does that admit responsibility (so that I don't have to mail it)?

    Does anybody have any idea about the type of money this will cost?

    All it says:

    OR-USE LOT OTHER THAN INT. 895


    Although I think I just found it; it says on their website " MISUSE OF LOT/LOITERING $130.00"

    How ridiculous... :-/ Is this something I should try and fight?

    This is what? A MCL 750.167 "disorderly person" charge? An ordinance violation (and if so, identify the ordinance and governmental unit)?

    Not as far as I know -- I think it's an ordinance violation all it says is like 99909 and 895.
