Paying Off A Warrant In Plano
Many people do not realize that paying off a warrant in Plano is the equivalent of pleading guilty to the charged offense. Once a plea of guilty has been entered it then becomes Plano Municipal Court’s responsibility to report that guilt as a conviction on your permanent record. This report is sent to Texas Department of Public Safety. Texas DPS then has some really nasty punishments they can hand down as a result of traffic ticket convictions. Some of the most common punishments that are handed down are driver’s license suspensions, financial surcharge penalties and increased insurance rates. In some cases, one traffic ticket conviction can cost you as much as $2,000.00 extra in penalties, surcharges and insurance rate increases.
Plano will not tell you about these penalties either. Don’t expect them to be your legal counsel. It is not their place in our society. Their place as is true with most government entities is to secure their survival. Their survival is heavily dependent on generating revenue. The fastest way to generate that revenue is not to inform you of your rights, but to take your money and kick you out of their court. Taking your money is the easiest for them and the most harmful to you.
You have to find a remedy that allows you some type of benefit in exchange for your hard earned money. The only real way to do this with any probability of success is to hire a legal professional to assist you. An attorney can remove the warrant and protect your permanent record with your cooperation. Not every case will be dismissed, but it will alleviate the requirement of Plano Municipal Court reporting all of your tickets as convictions and further harming your record. We encourage you to at least take the time to consult a lawyer before you choose to take a course of action that may not be easily undone and end up harming you severely in the process.
