Well, it seems I worried for nothing.

Just back from municipal court. I pleaded guilty. $50 fine, $70 in court costs. That’s less than I got for speeding last fall!

Where I live it’s so rural we don’t have a specific court for traffic offenses; it’s all put together into one room. There were people there for all kinds of stuff, including three or four people who had been taken there from jail. It was actually kind of interesting. But I hope I don’t wind up in there again anytime soon.
