Q: I was pulled over. Never received or signed a citation now I have a failure to appear
If I was never given a ticket or sign the ticket because I was never given a ticket how can I have a failure to appear against me if I did not know I needed to appear because there was no citation given to me but now I have a failure to appear and they claim that they have an unsigned ticket what kind of crackhead move is this and is that legal or lawful enforcement practice I feel like I've been blindsided
A: No one in this forum can accurately comment on your specific situation, but you have the right to contest the matter if you believe you did not commit an offense. Contact the court and request a hearing. Calling an attorney might help. Good luck.
