    Actually, Dekalb SO would be a good place to start. You could wait out the years between your driving history etc while working in the jail and get great experience. In my experience, people that started working in the jails are way ahead of the game when they get on the road. Spanish is a good language for the area too. What is a PEB test?

    Ack, my bad! Thanks for the heads up. I thought we were allowed to post if we had related questions about the OP that the OP/an LEO could answer (Guidelines said "HOWEVER, if you are a civilian and have a NEW Question or need clarification of an answer, you can reply in the original post"), I misinterpreted that.

    Stepping out, my apologies to everyone

    Scarlett,

    If you're not a law enforcement officer you should not be posting in Ask a Cop, unless you are an OP and have a question that needs answered.

    Have a great night and good luck in the job search.

    Most likely the defendant will have the charge of failure to appear dismissed if they are found to be "not at fault" either because they were in jail or the notice was sent to the wrong address due to a clerical error, but that does not make the arrest wrong
    I see. Appreciate the explanation. The OP hasn't answered my question about how he knew the officer got his address wrong. Basically it sounds like he should have been aware of a responsibility to follow up after receiving the ticket and this defense

    is just... not a defense. If there was indeed a clerical error he could have had (or still have?) the FTA/failure to pay dismissed and his whole suspension thing would be a non-issue, right?


    MrWesley- is there any reason for not trying to get that dismissal if your suspension is such a big deal? Going to court in another state for an error sounds like a pain but, uh, maybe them's the breaks if you care about having a clean record.

    Gotcha, thanks for clarifying! It sounded like maybe there were moving violation citations that are not signed right then by the violator and the info is just to them mailed later. For things like red light camera tickets it would make sense, but not for speeding.

    The Court system will take care of worrying about it being a legitimate excuse

    Scarlett, let's do some basics. When the violator signs the citation, he/she agrees to either pay the citation or enter a plea of "Not Guilty" and request a court date. Instructions, including court and court clerk phone numbers are found on the reverse of the violator's copy of the citation/summons. It is the violator's responsibility, as evidenced by his signature, to follow all of the pertinent instructions. He would also be responsible for advising the court of any changes in his address etc.

    Yes, errors are sometimes made by court clerks and others in the "system". However, in the vast majority of cases, and in cases where a citation/summons goes to warrant, the fault lies with the violator.

    How do you know he wrote down the wrong address/know if and where it was sent instead? Did you have a copy of the original citation with the wrong address written on it or did you track down this info later through the courts or PD?

    Sorry for the slight hijack, MrWesley- Curious to hear from LEOs if it's a valid excuse for going to warrant (re: lack of payment or Failure To Appear) when the offender legitimately never received a court date or fine payment information due to human error somewhere in the process. I stress legitimately because ~100% of the people I've seen pulled over and caught for warrants say "I never got anything about this in the mail, had no idea" and like 98% of them are obviously lying. But the other 2% made me wonder.

    In Nevada the fine info and court date are written right on the citation and the offender signs it, so there is proof that they're aware of their obligation. Apparently in other states it is mailed to them...?

    If you WERE an MP. Doubt you ever were.

    How about you refraining from attempting to dictate what I do or not do on this site. I call em like I see em, and I (we) have got your number. Can't handle that, then maybe you should consider moving on. Your continual B.S. is starting to get a little old.

    Were I the only one to have called you on your obvious B.S. that would be one thing, but you've managed to build a consensus, and much like your crappy MVH, you did it all by yourself. You're a piece of work. A total, confirmed scofflaw who now regales us with tales of his exploits as an MP.

    Once more, be a politician, run for office. You might have a future there. The standards are really pretty lax, no background investigations, plenty of drunks, screw ups and traffic violators (Kennedy's) . You'd be right at home.
