I received a letter from Bastrop TX about unpaid tickets I was locked up ten years ago and I informed the court clerk I had tickets I bonded out and the case against me was dropped. I informed the clerk about a past case where I spent almost 30 days a was found not guilty. The days I spent in jail should have covered my tickets. What can I do to resolve this issue
It depends. The warrants had to be active and the jail you were in had to be aware of them. If you didn't get credit at the time it is highly unlikely you will get credit now. Contact Bastrop and have all your Austin jail info at hand.

If the tickets were issued before the jail time, the court could still consider giving you jail credit. That would result in convictions for the tickets though, and convictions could trigger suspension of your drivers license depending on what kind of tickets they are and what the status of your license was when you received the tickets.
