Was pulled over for traffic violation, officer realized I had previous unpaid parking ticket - I received no notice for court appearance. Initial ticket was for parking in neighbor's spot.
I don't see how any of this would help you even if you did prove it in court. You don't have to be read your rights unless the police are interrogating you and want to use your statements in court. it sounds like you were pulled over for a valid traffic infraction and when the cop realized you had previous unpaid tickets, he arrested you. He would not need a warrant in that situation. As for not receiving notice of a court appearance, you could argue that as a reason why you never paid them, but it won't make the arrest illegal by any means.
It sounds like you should hire an attorney to handle this for you.
If you have a warrant for an unpaid ticket, you can be arrested at anytime. You should hire an attorney to help you clear this up.
More information is needed. The cop does not need to inform you of anything. if there is a warrant he wxecutes it. He does not have to read yo your right. The prior contempt on the prior ticket can be defended if notice was not received. If this is because you did not change address wirh MVC it is yur bad but can be worked out. I suggest you post the bail and retain an attorney especially if you were suspended because of the FTA.
OK, you weren't read your rights. So nothing you said after he arrested you can be used against you. So what?
You had a warrant, and the officer arrested you. You were not arrested without a warrant, you had one. And the officer informed you of that when he arrested you.
