I got the jaywalking citation on December 22, 2012 but the officer wrote my court appearance date as January 24, 2012: a clearly impassible date for me to appear. I just need to know if the citation is invalid on its face because of this "material mistake", which denies me the right to appear in Court, or is it just a clerical error which can be corrected without affecting the validity of the citation?
