I did not know what to do with the ticket I had received. I got the courage to call my dad and then later, my mom. My roommate's dad, who is a lawyer, advised me to hire a lawyer and see what happens from there. I still shake my head at the fact that I, Esther Joy, hired a lawyer. After a month of filling out papers and feeling anxious, this is the email I got from my lawyer:
The charge against you was dismissed, for failure to prosecute, because the trooper did not appear at Court.Thank you for allowing me to handle this for you.
What a taste of grace. This will be an experience that I will never forget.
