My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: Texas
Several years ago I recieved a speeding ticket in Texas (I'm an out of state driver in PA). Other then the fact that I was speeding, it was a pretty routine ticket, no DUI, reckless driving, etc. I was given a citation for speeding and drove the rest of the way home to PA. Several days later I mailed in the fine (around $200) as it obviously would have cost much more to fly to Texas, hire a lawyer, etc.
I am now applying for a job and I am curious as to how this ticket is classified and if I should answer "yes" to have you ever been convicted of a Misdemeanor? If you look on the court records for any charged with a speeding ticket (I can't find my record) it lists this ticket as a Traffic Infraction as oppossed to "Adult Misdemenor" as you would find on someone with a DUI. However when you click on each record, under category it stats "Traffic Misdemeanor" as oppossed to "Adult Misdemeanor"
Can someone who is much better at Law then me, interupt this for me? Is there a distinction b/w "Traffic Misdemeanor". When I google Texas traffic lawyers, none of them mention a misdemeanor charge for speeding (you think they would) so I really don't know. Any help you could provide would be much appreciated.
