When I called the court they said I have to come and plead my case in front of the judge then they will subpoena the officer. Is there anything I can do to clear my name as I am in the process of looking for a new job and an worried this will come up on background check.
You go to court and if you want it done faster bring your brother to admit it.

The court told you exactly what you need to do, listen to them. The only thing I would add is that if you want to increase the chances of winning either have your brother go to court and admit it was him or hire a lawyer to defend the case, otherwise you may not like the result.
