I had an MIP charge in Aug which resulted in dp & 12.5 hours of comm serv. I was told at the court I had 4 months to complete my hours & to report to a comm serv center to get the necessary time sheets & register where I was going to do the hours. I put the hours on the back burner so I could focus on school & recently got around to completing them. When I looked at the comm serv papers, they said "completion date 10/1/09." I went ahead and did the hours anyway, but now I am unsure of how to approach the community service center and the court about my accidental date mix up. I have technically still completed them on time according to the 4 month date, but I am about a couple months late on the October date. Is that a valid excuse? How should I approach the matter?
