Longview, TX asked in Criminal Law and Traffic Tickets for Texas

Q: After having a background check ran on me for employment reasons, i find out that I have a misdemeanor traffic citation

For failure to stay in single lane which was dated 8/25/2016 yet I have not been pulled over or have I had a citation come in the mail. I dont have any idea how this was issued to me. The last time I received a traffic ticket was 2012 and that was paid and disposed. Can you tell how this could be possible?

A: It could be a mistake, especially if you were never pulled over, and the ticket is for a moving traffic violation. You should contact an attorney who can help you get the matter straightened out and hopefully have the case dismissed.
