My son recieved a ticket for a small fender bender in a private hospital parking lot in ABILENE TEXAS. He tried to pay the fine for more than a month by phone and each time he called the court, he was told they had no record. The last time he called the court he was told dont worry if they didnt have the ticket by now, it would be on them. Months later He recieved an advisory that an arrest warrant would be issued if he didnt take care of his ticket. He immediately went and paid the ticket without court procedings or admission of guilt. Now the state wants to access points for allegeged convictions of numerous multiple traffic violations and also want to asess a surcharge for these alleged convictions under traffic code 608. My son had one other ticket for failure to stop at a stop sign in the country. again he paid the fine but did not admit to guilty in a court.
