Thanks for clarifying!
A violation of 257.624 is a misdemeanor
(a crime), punishable by a fine of up to $100, community service, and substance abuse screening.
Unfortunately, a court appearance is generally mandatory for the charge and an individual cannot typically pay a fine and make the charge go away.
Sadly, even if an individual does plead guilty, the conviction will show on his/her record (meaning that doing so may or may not be the best move).
It's also important to understand that, even though the officer didn't site other possible charges, the prosecutor still has the discretion to pursue additional charges if he/she wishes.
Your next step at this stage is to immediately take the matter to your criminal defense attorney. Your attorney will evaluate any possible defenses (for instance, depending on the nature of the traffic stop, your attorney might be able to find a basis to suppress the evidence which could conceivably defeat the charges).
Even if a strong defense isn't available, your attorney may be able to negotiate something favorable, such as a withheld adjudication whereby a fine is paid, probation is served, and charges are dismissed.
I know that this may not be entirely what you wanted to hear. However, it's the honest truth and I know you want a truthful answer above all. I hope that you will click accept so that I am paid for my time and effort spent providing this information.
