I got my first speeding ticket and was out of my home state and country since receiving the ticket. when i returned home i received a letter notifying me that if i did not pay by a certain date then my license would be suspended. I immediately called va court to see what my options were. I originally asked for an extended payment and a rehearing but was told that if i do the rehearing then i don't need the extended payment forms. I wasn't told i had to chose one or the other. i have a court date 2mrw but will not make it to va. i spoke to someone at the va court who said the judge will just mark my case as guilty and everything will stay the same...I will not go to jail and the amount of the ticket remains the same. is this true or false? what are my options?
