About 3 years ago, I received a ticket from the Hickory Creek Police Department, and politely advised the ticketing officer that I was not guilty of a crime, and that I would not sign the ticket. At the time, I asked the officer to please arrest me, and take me to jail for refusal to sign, if he thought I was guilty. The officer refused, and said he would see me in court. I advised the officer I would not be in court, but to my surprise, he knew something I didn’t. The officer knew that the court would abuse it’s power to ensure that I pay this fine. So years later, my drivers license is up for renewal, and to my surprise, there is the Town of Hickory Creek with a hold on my drivers license. So I call the court and ask what is going on. I am advised that I will have to come to court or pay the fine to get this hold removed from my drivers license. The problem is that I don’t have money to pay the ticket, and with two young children, I can’t make it to court for a trial. I don’t have money for daycare, and to make matters worse, I don’t have a drivers license. When advising the court clerk of my situation, she continually tells me that I have no remedy but to see the judge, or pay the fine. This has gone on for months, and my license has been suspended for 6 months. I try to call and find a resoultion. Although I am not guilty of the crime, I am willing to sit out the fines in jail, but to my amazement, the town of Hickory Creek cannot accomodate. So, in short, I have a warrant for my arrest, but it is not arrestable, according to the court clerk. The town of Hickory Creek has no jail, but uses the county jail, which is not currently accepting Class C Misdemeanors. Having no jail, the court clerk tells me that my only option is to pay the fine, or keep driving without a license. So it seems to me that this will go on for as long as the court has the power to abuse their police powers, upheld by the state, as the DPS tells me they can’t help me. This is Municipal Court Corruption in Texas in the town of Hickory Creek.
