My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: MS
So, I was out of state traveling back home and a trooper wrote me a ticket for 15 mph over the limit. It had the wrong county listed on the ticket and I could not make out any of the other printed nonsense on the ticket. I worked out the ticket and got it reduced to where it would not go on my driving record with the county listed on the ticket. However, that county was not the county in which the trooper turned the ticket into. So, the court I sent it too sent me the money back and told me to contact the other county which I did. This county does not have assistant DAs but rather department sheriff investigators. I found this strange, but I called them and told them about what happened and while the officer was nice and told me that they would dismiss the ticket that day. That did not occur, and with only a day or so left to go to court for it, I live out of state and will not be able to be there in person. I paid the ticket online since I did not want a failure to appear or a warrant issued for me for not showing up. Now, I do not CARE about the money, All I care about is it not going on my record. I contacted an attorney down there and sent a letter to the DA office in order to remind them of what they told me.
With no assurance that it was dismissed, I got scared and just paid it. Rather right or wrong it was out of state and I have no intention of going to court. The wrongly listed county sent me my money back and I am wondering if I still can get it dismissed, or at least not going on my record. I realize paying the fine pretty much closes the case but can I amended the plea in order to not get it to go on my record. Some states do not report to other states and some do. I did not and could not trust the officers representative to have my best interest at court so that is why I paid it, with no time to hire a proper lawyer. I will add that it took the wrong court 2 months to send me my money back and the corrected court where it was to be heard. I had only one week to work it out so I panicked. Any advice would be appreciated thank you, and I currently have no tickets on my record.
