Good afternoon. Have you received any notice from the clerk of court or any collection agency? Is your license valid?
Thank you. You first may want to go online and search their name through the clerk of courts website, to see if anything appears related to this. If nothing appears, then they should call the clerk to confirm that the case is closed. Typically, when a fine is not paid, it is either sent to collections and fees and interest is added to it or the court may take action and suspended the defendants drivers license, if they have one. If he was not a legal citizen and they can not find him, there is little they can do at this time. If he has since become a citizen, something like this would/should have appeared at some point during the immigration process. If the person wants to clear it up, they can speak with the clerk, as I shared above and make payment arrangements, if it is in the system and active.
