Customer Question
My son just got a...
My son just got a ticket for running a red light, then they discovered a bench warrant going back 6 years. What could be his penalty? It was originally for driving under suspension. He now has a valid license. The original penalty was 7 days work release. He showed up at the jail for it and they told him they were full and his name wasn't on the list. He had a public defender at the time who had personal issues of her own. He couldn't get a hold of her and had no correspondence from her and he went on with his life.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
