Miami, FL asked in Identity Theft and Traffic Tickets for Florida

Q: My Driving License Identity was used at a traffic citation by someone. I have received Order of Suspension from the Stat

Hi I received a Order of Suspension letter from the State of Florida Division of Motorist Services. Someone used my license details (name / DOB /height) on a traffic citation and the county is taking me to court. The car details on the Citation are unknown to me and I can prove I was at a different location at the time the traffic citation took place (at work) . How do I clear myself from this identify fraud ? I have until later this month else my license will be suspended. I've reported to DMV & police . What is the best approach to get myself cleared with the county courts? I don't want to be liable for any court fees either.
