Bench warrant for traffic ticket help!!!!!!!!!
Two years ago I got pulled over (in a little city) because I had a tag applied for sign on my car. I didn’t know the cop was behind me until I heard her sirens. When she came to my car she told me that she was about to run me off the road. She told me that she had tried to pull me over a few houses back. My phone kept ringing so she asked me if I was on it, I told her yes, since I don’t believe it to be against the law to talk on the phone while driving. She then went to her car and sat there for about 30 minutes. Finally she came back with 3 tickets! Reckless driving while on a cell phone, passing in a no passing zone (BULL), and fleeing and attempting to allude. I just accepted the tickets and went to the court on the court date and pled not guilty. They gave me a new court date, and due to my own fault I mistaken my court date to be on a Wednesday instead of the Tuesday before. When I walked in the court house the sheriff told me that their was no court that day and pulled up my name. He then told me that my court was the day before and I was to come up with 1000 dollars for missing court. I called back a week later and asked about the $1000 and they told me that it was only a one day offer and that I had to turn myself in to the county. While The very next day I found out that I was expecting, and decided to wait until after the baby was born before I turned myself in. Well, I’m trying to get it all in order now, but when I called my county they told me that there are no warrant for me and when I called the DMV they told me that my licences were fine and I should have no problems getting them renewed or anything of that sort. The city I was pulled over in, however, still says that there is a warrant for me. This city told me that I need to go to jail and wait for a new court date! I am a single mother, who is a collage student and has too much to lose if I was to get arrested and lose my licences. Should I just forget about the warrant and stay away from that city, since the warrant isn’t showing up any where else? Our should I turn myself in and lose my licences, car, insurance, job, grant money etc...? HELP!!!! :?
