In 2011, I was pulled over for DUI for a headlight out. I requested a continuance for my case to seek counsel and was given a PD slip. My new court date was set for 3 months later. I missed this court date due to lack of transportation and living out of state. Fast forward to August 2014: I was pulled over for a license plate light out driving a friends car.
