    Default Can You Get a Misdemeanor Ticket Dismissed Over an Error in Your Name

    A driver in Georgia was pulled over in a car that smelled of marijuana and, after a search, the police officer found 1.5 ounces of marijuana. The officer issued a misdemeanor citation to the driver, but the ticket has only the driver's first name and not his last name. Can the ticket be dismissed on that basis?

    Default Re: Can You Get a Misdemeanor Ticket Dismissed Over an Error in Your Name

    If the charge is never amended to fully identify the defendant, the case is not going to progress -- but, realistically speaking, if they have the driver's vehicle information, first name and driver's license number, the omission will be corrected and the charge will proceed.
