Hi I have a question regarding this thread. I was arrested on a warrant two weeks ago. It's a traffic warrant for speeding and hit run and run (misdemeanor). Currently DMV is holding up my license due to the courts. The date I was given for court is June 02, 2009. I asked the clerk for an earlier date and she said it was impossible.
What can I do to get in court sooner? Should I keep my mouth shut and ask for a dismissal at my court date based upon Penal Code 1382(a)(3) ?
Thanks in advance!
