What can I do if I was pulled over and used my sister's name to try to get out of a ticket but they ended up giving me several traffic infraction but in her name?
Question Details: I was driving my son's car to a mechanic when I got pulled over. The car didn't have insurance and had a suspended registration. I did not know this when I agreed to take his car to the mechanic. So I figured because my sister is married to a retired police captain, I'd used her name to try to get out of it. However, I ended up getting tickets in her name, which I didn't mean to get. How can I fix this situation? Should I go to court on the day the ticket says and tell the judge it was me and not her?
Retain a lawyer--NOW--and don't say anything to anyone, or do anything, without following the lawyer's advice. You committed identity theft. You interfered with a police investigation. You provide false information to the police. In short, you committed a number of crimes each of which is far more serious than the traffic offenses you committed. Hire a criminal defense attorney to represent you immediately.
