I went today(10.13.09) to juvenile court for a stop sign ticket i got on 8.14.09. After waiting a while in line, the clerk shuffles around some papers, and goes on the computer. Eventually, she prints a page saying no active cases were found, and tells me to go home.
The paper basically states, I appeared in court, but no active cases were found. I'm advised to wait for notice from the court, police, or DMV. If I receive a notice, I'm supposed to call a number to confirm appearing in court.
Has anyone had experience with this? What usually happens when the case is not active? Lastly, is it possible for the ticket to be dismissed as a result of it being inactive?(**i went to juvenile court because i got the ticket when i was 17)
