    So a family member of mine used a vehicle that doesn't belong to me anymore, but is still registered under my name until the full payment of the vehicle has been paid. Unfortunately, he had gotten a hold of my old drivers license that's still valid which I do not carry anymore. I've obtained my motorcycle license so I carry that instead. Story is, he had gotten pulled over driving the vehicle that was still under my name and was afraid cause he had no license and had used my old valid drivers license. Now I have a ticket under my name and I wasn't even part of this whole thing. Would I stand a chance fighting this citation? Advice wold be greatly appreciated. TIA.

    Plead not guilty and rat out your family member.

    Hard to imagine you haven't figured that out by now.

    Also file a police report on the stolen driver license so he gets prosecuted for identity theft, false ID, whatever else they can throw at him.

    Your family member is a low life and needs to be taken down.

    Well, apparently it does if it's still registered to you.

    Great police officers like you, sir, make piss poor attorneys like me look like the vermin I aspire to become. LOL
