A: There is most definitely a statute of limitations, and it is 2 years. However, if you have already paid it, you are out of luck. If you can contact the court, you may attempt to withdraw your plea, but payment applied to the ticket pretty much puts an end to the case and makes it a conviction. You mentioned you "sent" payment. The only hope I would have is they didn't receive it. Contact the court and find out what happened. If it isn't paid already, hire a traffic attorney in your area.
