My question involves court procedures for the state of: Texas. I received a certified letter that was already signed by me apparently, in my mailbox by the mailman. When I went to ask the code enforcement officer about this, he showed me the signature and it was in PRINT..his print handwriting to be exact. I sign my name in cursive. So, I never did sign for a letter giving me x amount of days to clean up MY property AFTER a tornado mind you that came through the city of Bowie Texas. Today, I just got a visit from the Bowie police department with a summons to go to court for a misdemeanor offence committed against the laws of the state of Texas....in () it said" an ordinance of the said city" to wit: outdoor storage ( I can't have a tool shed?), Obstruction of right of way( I'm the last house on the end of the street before you get to uncrossable railroad tracks with warning signs from the Union Pacific railroad "do not cross"..so what am I obstructing?), Junk& trash ( we suffered a EF1 tornado in late May and requested the city for assistance in helping us get rid of brush,trash and debris and were put on a list..and they never came to assist. We lost 11 50+ft pecan trees we had to cut up and stack ourselves and the damages are still evident in the yard...but nobody comes down to the end of the street. Nobody sees our yard on a daily basis so why the complaint??... we're doing what we can and they decided to forge my signature on a certified letter and have the mail man set it in our mail box ( he's the snitch... takes pics of ppls property and shows the code enforcement officer and code enforcement supervisor (same guy), and delivers already signed certified mail that your supposed to go up to the post office for to sign and pick up)...so I've got 2 days..what do I do??? How do I present this to the judge nicely and still accepting responsibility for the messy yard but not get in trouble??..and get those two people charged for federal crimes? Because that's what they've commited.. federal crimes. Not to mention I've had a city worker steal my tools... and was told by the police department that he in fact did steal them and would return them in the morning...like it wasn't a big deal.
