All it takes is the word of some highly suspect sheriff or cop to get you
into this pile of doo-doo but funny how their word can't get you out of it.
Didn't Joseph Heller write a book about this?

The state courts seem to treat everyone like crap now. It is a budget issue. The budgets have been cut over and over and I get the impression that part of the court's strategy was to piss off the public until there was a public outcry to restore funding. Not happening.

What used to take days to process now takes weeks before a clerk even looks at it.

Cosmic, your lucky you did not get arrested when you went to get copies of the tickets. I am just half kidding when I say that!

This is a case of what happens when too many cops fix tickets for friends or family. They lose the power to fix any ticket once it is in the system.

Good luck suing the county in their own superior court, it is playing a baseball game where the home team gets to make the rules and pick the umpires. In any event they have immunity for stupidity (negligence)

I just got back and saw this. I was going to send you an email, Dwain, but it seems like you've already done what I would have recommended.

I'm probably the only person on ST who has both sat as a judge pro tem in traffic court and spent time in custody. The courts right now are under tremendous financial stress, because cutting the clerk's office's budget is politically much more palatable than making some other cuts. The courts are having problems all over California. There's no malice, and no "I'm a government employee, so you can't fire me" involved. They're just plain swamped.

If anyone else finds themselves in Cosmic's position, the first thing to do is to remove the arrest warrant. Simultaneously, one should notify the DMV, preferably in writing, about this situation. Believe it or not, both the courts and the DMV will actually try to help someone who treats them with civility. Otherwise, you're violating Eleazarian's Commandment: "Thou shalt not piss off those that can help you."

If the situation is not resolved to your liking, Dwain, please email me and I'll do what I can to help.

this is why cop cars don't have hubcaps,

if they did, disgruntled citizens would steal then and sell them on evilbay,

Oh well.
Things could have been worse.

Back in the late 70s when I was living in Ridgecrest,
I got a fix it ticket in the Lone Pine area. I fixed the tailight got it signed off and took the signoff and all the paperwork to the courthouse
up in Independance or Lone Pine. I can't remember which.
I got the court receipt and thought it was all done.

Nine months later I am stopped by the Ridgecrest Police because
I hadn't recieved my tag for my registration yet. And after the stop and me explaining that I hadn't recieved the tag yet but I had proof that I sent the payment off in time by my checkbook stub. He informed me I had a
warrant for my arrest on a ticket frome the LP area.
He arrested me and then I was transported up there and spent the weekend in jail.

When I saw the judge on monday,I told him I had taken care of it.
But I didn't have or know where the court receipt was so I had to pay the huge fine, get my car out of impound and all the other BS.

After that I have made sure I keep the receipts from the couple other
tickets I've had over the years.

Thank goodness I kept all that info and receipts in the truck in my glove compartment so I have some sort of proof that I paid my fines just so something like that wouldn't happen again.

Thank goodness I kept what Little info and receipts that I had
Or I would have been royally Screwed!

Can you get tickets to the NCAA Final Four too?

Two would be perfect.

If your signature IS NOT on the Camry ticket, why do you have to pay the fine?

He doesn't .. it will get cleared by the judge.. after he wastes more money from time off work.

Just a SNAFU

That's one of my favorite acronyms.
