YES, it's valid. Very valid. Mistakes happen all the time and are easily corrected. If only if were so easy...You will need a better defense than "my name is misspelled."

Yes the ticket is still valid. A mistake like that will not factor into the case. You should either pay the ticket or hire an attorney if you have a bad driving record or if it is not just a minor infraction.
Yes. Common question same answer every time. It is valid
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but instead need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice.

This communication is for informational purposes only, and does not establish any attorney-client relationship with Lance O. Mixon. Further, the information contained in this answer should not be considered or taken as legal advice to represent oneself, and does not substitute proper, competent legal advice and representation from a licensed attorney.
I'm not sure where people get ideas like this in their head. Of course a ticket is valid even though your name is misspelled.
