She appeared with a lawyer before a municipal judge who dismissed two of the citations and told her to pay the 3rd. She did right then. Now she gets a note in the mail that she has 3 outstanding warrants for those tickets from 15 years ago!. They told her she needs to show proof she paid. 15 years later? What does she do?. She doesn't have copies of those citations.
She should contact the attorney she hired 15 years ago. Or, hire a new attorney now.
Did you receive a letter from a firm that collects $ for the municipality? Sometimes those letters are incorrect.
The City of San Antonio does not use such a collection agency but Bexar County JP Courts do. I've had several clients or inquiries regarding incorrect info.
City of San Antonio and Bexar County report outstanding warrants to Texas DPS. If you were able to renew your license, there may some incorrect info floating around.
Do your best to locate proof or hire an attorney that handles tickets in the court that alleges failure to pay.
I do a number of tickets in and around he area. It can likely be taken care of with a good attorney and a few phone calls. On stuff that old I usually contact the prosecuting attorneys directly and bypass the court, the court always wants money.
