Customer Question

Hi,
I was given a speeding ticket in the state of VA. For going 82 in a 70. In VA anything over 80 is an automatic reckless driving, misdemeanor. I am a military police for the USAF and obviously having that on my record could ruin my security clearance. I did not attend court for this case because my summons was sent to my old address. I PCS'ed and didn't have an address of the time of the incident. I was told to mail out a form asking the judge to review the case again. I don't know how to word my situation for the judge to review it again. My command doesn't know my situation yet because I'm scared of the consequences. Please help! Thank you
