The clerk told me that my case had gone to collections and it was impossible to see the judge. My license was suspended, and DMV says that until I take care of the ticket with the court I can't get my license back. It's now a failure to pay (too). I am beyond poor, and cannot afford to pay off the ticket. It's up to $1,300. Is there any way I can get around paying it off and still get my license back? A motion for a new trial? A request for a stay of a driver license suspension? I know there has to be something. I am applying for work, and at least 70% of potential employers require a driver license.
