A: Get the Shot Records and call the General Sessions or City Court Clerk (wherever the Citations are). Ask when the next Docket is for those type of Code Violations. It will be later because of the virus. Then go to Court in a respectful manner, and when the Judge asks if there are any other matters or at the end, stand up and tell the Court why you are there. You should be alright, and the worst that can happen is you are fined.
