I was going 76 in a 60 at night on a Texas Highway. When I asked how much the ticket was the cop said I had to appear in court for it I can’t pay it I really need help as I am freaking out and don’t want anything on my record

Yes, a 15 year old traffic ticket can still be prosecuted even if the citation was issued in your maiden name and you are now married.

You will most likely be required to hire a lawyer to help sort that out because several issues are involved. Is the SOL still in play with respect to the citation received in the mail?
