I was caught in NJ, for $19, macy's and was asked pay fine and I paid right there and then. i was taken by cops, photographed, fingerprinted. those were the most painful hours of my life. I have never done this and will never ever do it again. I am very,very shameful of this.
I have court date of 7/25. but my concern is, I am permanent resident and made plans to go out of country in July for 1 month. this was planner long ago.
1. is it a good thing to leave the country by postpoing the date?
2. will i have issues reentering. if I postpone my date, then no records and no convictions, I assume. so I should not have issues?
3. or should I advance the date, and know of the outcome and let the judge know about my trave plans? when I asked the court secretary, she said, I can leave the country.
but I was not sure.
3. or should i cancel my plans. please please help me.
