My husband drives a 18 wheeler and was speeding 15 miles over the limit so he was pulled over and issued a speeding ticket as well as a log book violation. Not sure how, but he missed his court date and now has a few weeks to pay $800 or go to jail. How can he fix this? We dont have $800.
He needs to ask the court for more time to hire a lawyer or ask to be appointed someone from the public defender's office.
