Hiring an attorney is out of the question because my son is currently unemployed. The next problem is that the county where the violation occurred is a little over 3 hours away & he doesn't have the transportation for the drive. Can the case be transferred to the county in which he currently resides? If so, how would he go about doing this? If not, what are his options?
Also, in the first paragraph of your answer you stated "the statute of limitations only applies to the time frame in which a case is charged." Since nothing was ever received after he appeared in court & was told at that time by the court clerk that no charges had been filed how is he to know if the case was charged in a timely manner?
Thank you for your time.
