A: Make a request in writing for a court setting. The officer who issued your citation hasn't filed it with the court as of yet, but that doesn't me she/he won't do so soon. Telephone calls do not count as a court appearance and you want to avoid a warrant because nothing is in your file by the appearance date on the citation. Calling an attorney would help. Good luck.
