Re: How Do I Fight 10 Year Old Tickets in Texas
How is it possible? Many court systems and law enforcement agency records are finally going online so the backlog of case that was either set aside and forgotten or those waiting to be processed is finally appearing EVERYWHERE. There has been a rash of these cases, not just in Texas but nationwide where people are getting notifications of warrants, Failure To Appears, Failure To Pays, suspended licenses... etc for citations that they thought would have disappeared with the passing of time.
If you can't pay the citations then I suggest you change your plans about moving to Texas or if you do still go through with your plan, I 1st, would not drive, as your license might be suspended (you should even check on its status in your current home state), and 2nd, don't get pulled over or get into any trouble because if you can get verification that a warrant is outstanding, then they are serious about collecting their money.
I cannot tell you whether you will still able to contest the citations or not but judging by the letter from the attorney, the threat of wage garnishment, and the inability of the court clerk to give you any further details about the citation, my guess is that you have already been convicted of those violations due to your failure to appear. But again, don't take my word on that. Only the court can confirm that status for you.
I am right 97% of the time... Who cares about the other 4%!
