OK, here's what happened. A little over a month ago, I was with a friend of mine. He had a few drinks, so I was driving his car. We were headed to a diner for a late-nite meal when we got pulled over because the tail lights were broken. The cop was nice and all, but he got a summons. If we fixed the lights and brought a receipt proving it to court, there was no fine and we were off the hook. However, since it was his car (and I had never been given a ticket before), I gave it to him and he said he would take care of it. He fixed the lights on time, but the dumbass forgot to go to court. So I got a letter saying that I missed the court date and have to go back for another date tomorrow. Both of us screwed up: A--I didn't realise the ticket was in my name since the problem was with HIS car (instead of, say, a speeding ticket which would have been all me). B--He screwed up cause he didn't go to court. So what can I expect at the next court date? A fine? Worse? I've never had to go to court before and I'm just a little nervous. He still has the original ticket and the reciept from when he fixed the lights so hopefully they'll just dismiss it, but I'm still a little nervous.
