The answer to your question is yes, you could be mailed a citation ut the question I would have is: why wouldn't the office give you the citation at the scene? Call an attorney if you receive anything in the mail. Good luck.
If I was never given a ticket or sign the ticket because I was never given a ticket how can I have a failure to appear against me if I did not know I needed to appear because there was no citation given to me but now I have a failure to appear and they claim that they have an unsigned ticket what...

No one in this forum can accurately comment on your specific situation, but you have the right to contest the matter if you believe you did not commit an offense. Contact the court and request a hearing. Calling an attorney might help. Good luck.
Yes, the officer can ask the question you refer to. Check the Texas Transportation Code and/or the city ordinance in the locale where you received the citation to review the statute in question. for class c violations Good luck.
You cannot remove a citation from your driving record once you have been found guilty and the Court has entered a final judgment. You have to take the steps necessary to avoid the final conviction. Call an attorney BEFORE you do anything with a court. Good luck
I have kept quiet in hopes my manipulative ex would chnage but never did, just got worse and ended up in a dark place feeling used and played by someone I loved. Can they go back and charge her and her family as well for threatning me? I have proof of it happening multiple times. Does this help the... Read more »
I got two tickets by the same cop, he wrote a ticket for displaying a “fictitious” registration, but also gave me a ticket for the “fictitious” registration being expired. I no longer own that car, but I thought cops couldn’t give you two different tickets for one thing?
Fail to signal lane change, unsafe start from parked/stopped/standing, and driver disregarded police officer or crossing. Issues by mail. Never encountered police or was pulled over. Got in mail 6 days later of alleged offense. Vehicle is a shared work vehicle that was sold 5 days ago. We don’t... Read more »
I tried to pay the $3 fee per their instructions at the lot by texting. They never responded to 2 texts and I still have the texts to prove that.They sent a letter saying I owe $82 now and they will boot or tow my car if I do not pay that. Can they do that? It seems illegal since it is not a city... Read more »
Short answer, yes, your car can be towed even if it is in a private parking lot. Hypothetical: if someone parked their car in the private driveway of your home and left it there, do you feel you could have the car towed?
I'm confused. Who is the "he" you are referring to? The driver of the vehicle who hit your mother? Regarding any delay, the pandemic has created a huge backlog in virtually all courts. If your mother was the victim of this crime, I suggest contacting the DA assigned to the case....Read more »

The State has the burden of proof in all cases to convince a jury that all allegations in an indictment are true. The remedy in the situation you describe is to set the case for trial (and in the meanwhile, have the drugs tested by an independent 3rd party lab; your brother can't just walk up...Read more »
My brother was stopped and searched and nothing but s blunt was found in him. When was then took to jail finally. The cop did a very thorough search of his ride and found nothing else. He was them arrested and took to county jail. Over 6 hours later the law comes back to the jail and says he found... Read more »
The short answer to your question is yes, a person can be charged with a criminal offense under the situation you describe. Whether the State can prove these allegations beyond a reasonable doubt, however, is a different matter. Start calling lawyers in your area. Good luck.
The first question is what is the alleged location in question. Next, the zoning of that location must be checked. Whether the officer lied or not is a question of fact which is what trials are for; the officer has the right to appear in court to testify just like you do and she/he may claim YOU...Read more »
