I know it was dumb of me I been stressing on it 24/7 I don't need a lecture ready got many from my husband and parents
They will run your finger print. The best thing you can do for yourself, aside from hiring an attorney, is to go to court and tell the truth.
Best thing you can do is to go to the court clerk's office and see if you can pay the fine early before the court date. You can have other charges filed against you for giving false information, but if the ticket is paid, they will not run the fingerprint, in my opinion.
Your best bet is to make sure that you go to court and take care of this. If you ignore it, it will not go away. The DA can file additional charges, so you are better off retaining an attorney to assist you. Especially if you cannot make it to court because you state you may be in labor. An attorney can take the stress off your worry. There are a lot of attorneys that will give you a free consultation. Good luck.

This thing goes to warrant and you're friend whose information you gave, may get into trouble. I'm not sure what you mean by gave your fingerprint, was it ink or did they use the machine? If they used the machine and you lied to a peace officer, that falls under PC 148.9 - Falsely Identifying yourself to a peace officer, a misdemeanor.
Seems like you possibly turned an infraction/citation for fare evasion into a misdemeanor. Maybe you don't "need a lecture," but it certainly seems like you need a quality, criminal defense attorney.
You either need to make sure you are there, to straighten things out (our your friend will end up with a warrant), or hire and attorney to represent you.
My suggestion, hire the attorney. In order to resolve everything you will need to get the name corrected. Which means you will have to admit to giving a false name - specifically, your friends. Once that happens, the DA could end up trying to charge you with ID theft as well.

If you ignore this your "friend" will probably no longer be your friend when a warrant is issued and they are stopped for a traffic violation and arrested.
Pay the fine and this will go away.
