I got a speeding ticket in NC in 2003 and went to the court date. While in the waiting room the court appointed lawyer asked what I was there for and I told him for a speeding ticket and he said that since I was so young that he could probably get it dismissed. I signed my name on his paper to appear for me and filled out my address and info. He went in and came out about 20-30 min later and said it was dismissed and he would send me his fee via mail. It never showed up on my DMV records since it was cleared until I tried to get my license in GA. Now it is saying that I have 3 FTA and a speeding ticket but when I contacted the court they said they cant talk about it and most times they cant even find me in the system. How do I get this cleared up and off my record?
You need to hire a local attorney in NC to look into the matter. Obviously there was a miscommunication and some research needs to be done to figure out where everything went wrong. If you have any papers, that will greatly help, even the original citations or other records.

It is important when dealing with any court situation to get documentation at the time that shows the disposition. Any person dealing with this type of situation should do the same.
