I got the traffic ticket on January 8, I waited until February 3, checking the website frequently. My name came up on a Saturday, which seems surprising to me. When I came back to the courthouse for the 5th time, the following Monday, I waited 20 minutes for a clerk, with about 45 people ahead of me. Then the clerk hands me a piece of paper and tells me the judge is in the lower level and is there from M-F. When I got to the doors for the courtroom, it was locked, with people inside the room, about 12 of them. There are also about 40 people who sat outside the courtroom with me here.
The judge was Sonny Quan or Kwan? She said I looked like I was going to plead “not guilty” so she said she would save me some time and drop the charge.
