A: They may or may not be able to do this, an attorney would need to ask you and the court a lot of question starting with ,one like were the tickets issued and served on you, the reason why they were not in the system, were the tickets sent to another court thus a double jeopardy problem. That being said I have seen this before with people using a public defender. I suggest you setup a consultation with a good traffic ticket lawyer.
