My question involves a driver's license issued by the State of: California
Sometime in October of 2011 I had received a Fix-it Ticket for 12815(A) VC Mutilated license.
the next day i went to the DMV and paid for a new drivers license. When I received I had immediately gone to the Chatsworth courthouse and I had a LA county sheriff sign the ticket off. I did go to the court and paid the fixit ticket and the charge for the clerk fee. (one was $17 and the other was $25 Total $42, I do have receipts and the carbonless copy of the ticket). After this was done I thought that I was done with that violation and it was over..
Fast Forward to yesterday when I receive a letter from the LA Superior court that I had failed to appear and that my drivers license has been put on hold by the DMV. Now I have bail amount of $919.00H and the letter stated that they can discount a whopping $300 if I pay immediately...
So as of now, I do not know what I need to do. The ticket was paid over half year ago....... and now I receive this nice letter in the mail. I always though that you had to correct the violation pay what ever fees and be done with it...
What should I do? Do you have to stand in front a judge for a measly fix-it ticket?
