Hi, my brother was recently in rehab for alcohol. He had left his car at my house, and called me one day and asked if I could drop some stuff off to him at rehab since he had nothing there. I said yes, and drove there in his car since I don't own a car of my own. I got pulled over and the cop told me the car had a suspended registration. I didn't have my license on me either but I do have a license, and I had my permit on me. The cop told me that all I had to do was show up in court with my license and everything would be fine
, however, my brother got released from rehab, took the car, and got it impounded, while my ticket was still in the car. I didn't know when my court date was, and so I missed it. However, tomorrow is my next court date which I will attend. Just wondering how bad this is ?? I didn't know the car's registartion was supsended!!
JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: New Yrok York*
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: when I look on the website for my court date they have 5 counts against me but the cop didn't inform me that any of these counts were going to be charged.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
