I am sorry to hear this.

Are you saying this is the first you learned of this charge?

Lawyer: Debra, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

Did you get a chance to read my questions to you? I cannot answer you in a meaningful way until I gather the appropriate information. There is no charge for us going up and back of course.

Thanks!

this is first time.

And do you want a chance to defend the charge?

Customer reply replied 7 months ago
NO, I didnt get any letter to appear. Suddenly I got the letter yesterday that I was guilty and the fine me 118 dollar.
Lawyer: Debra, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

If you want a chance to defend against the charge then you will need to attend at the courthouse and ask a clerk how to bring a motion to set aside the conviction on the grounds that you were not served with the ticket and had no knowledge of it until you received the notice of conviction.

You will be able to get the conviction set aside and then can plead not guilty and have a trial where you will be able to testify and try and disprove the allegations.

Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
