But one piece of news, that (finally) came in the mail last night: My traffic ticket has been dismissed!
Woo! Happy dance!
Given it was "dismissed" as opposed to checked off as "not guilty," I assume the officer simply never got around to filling out the paperwork.
Which is the best I could hope for. In a trial by written declaration, I make a written statement, the officer makes a written statement, and the judge, after careful consideration, believes the officer. So my only hope was the lack of response.
Anyway, I'll be getting my $400.90 back from them.
Sometime in the next 60 days. One suspects, somehow, that this means I shouldn't expect it this coming week.
Anyway, must start getting up for the day. My mom's birthday party starts in 10 minutes...
