Contact the Texas Rangers (with the Department of Public Safety, not the baseball team) and the Attorney General's office if you believe your family is the subject of harassment by local police. Good luck.
Anybody can send you a letter, instructing you to do anything; following the instruction in such a letter, however, may not be the best course of action. Take this letter to an attorney for review. Good luck.
Unpaid speeding ticket in Oklahoma, was sent a letter that says my driving priviledges are suspended in Oklahoma, but I have a Texas license, what happens if I get pulled over in Texas? Will I get arrested? Or is it only in Oklahoma?
Eventually Oklahoma will notify Texas about your situation, and your Texas license will be suspended. Contact an attorney in Oklahoma to see what can be done to avoid a conviction on the tickets in that state. Good luck.

He was arrested by City of Lawton, charged with driving under revocation, Comanche county has the warrant, and he will probably be charged again there.

Tickets are class c misdemeanors, and an officer has the right to arrest an individual charged with a class c misdemeanor (except for speeding), take them to jail, make them appear in front of a judge, have a bond amount set, then post bond. Local jails, however aren't big enough to have everyone...Read more »
The short answer is yes, what the officer did was permissible, and you could have been arrested for the offense. Take the title of the vehicle in question along with the most recent registration receipt to the local county tax office to remedy the situation. Good luck.
That happens sometimes. Consider putting a recurring event on your calendar that reminds you to call them every Wednesday at 10am. If you are bad at using your calendar perhaps set an alarm on your smart phone for that purpose.

Later that evening she began receiving calls from the constable asking to meet with her in person so he could issue the citation in person. She said she'd speak with... Read more »
If I were the attorney I would have called the Constable and inquired directly what the problem was and told him if a ticket was being issued he can fax it to me, and we will get a not guilty plea filed for her.
Yes you can, and what we usually do under facts like this is try to get the Judge to allow you to pay the Fail to Appear and dismiss the no insurance. The FTA is not a moving violation and it keeps you from getting a suspension for no insurance and surcharges.
I went back the next day to video my exact route. To show that there are no visually posted signs with in the area the officer claimed I was speeding. Which is roughly about a 1 mile distance between the streets.

You were not arrested and did not give false information so this shouldn't apply. But, officer's often threaten to arrest for failure to identify. Whether a crime or not, right or wrong, you should give your id if you want to make 100% sure the cop doesn't decide to arrest, your car gets towed,...Read more »
