Kansas City, MO asked in Traffic Tickets for Kansas

Q: Got warning for no front plate. Same deputy, upset w/me issued ticket for it 3 months later saying he had a year. Legal?

I was given warning for no front plate due to hitting animal same night. Same Missouri deputy, who harrasses me a lot, showed up to assist a custody swap, 3 months later issues me a ticket for the no plate, saying he has a year to change his mind. All be because I said something he didn’t like. Is this legal? I know about MO law giving a 1 year statute of limitations after a ticket is issued for prosecution but to write an actual ticket after warning? Let me know. Thanks.

A: Probably legal for each day that you drive the car without the front plate. Unfortunately the state legislatures don't issue citations to the people most responsible for this, car dealers that sell cars without all the plates. This case arises under traffic ticket law. You need to discuss with an attorney in your jurisdiction that specializes in this kind of law. Thank you for using Justia, Ask a Lawyer.
