Legal Question: Police Officer

I got a ticket for not wearing my seat belt, when I was absolutely wearing one. The police officer tried to convince me I wasn’t. What do I do?

Within 15 days of the date the office gave you that ticket, you need to return it to the clerk’s office with box three on the back checked, so you can request a contested hearing. The clerk’s office will set a hearing date and time. Your hearing date probably won;t be for a few months from now, so prepare for your hearing by writing down—RIGHT NOW—what happened so the recent events are recorded and fresh in your mind. Then go to the hearing and read off your version of events.
