Did I just Get-Out-Of-Jail-Free?

So...I got a speeding ticket last month in Kansas, I live in Colorado. I called today to try and take care of it, tried giving her first and last name, ticket number, case number, ticket stub number, ticket color, officer name, and they couldn't find information anywhere about it in the system? Its been almost a month since I was issued the ticket so they should definitely have it in they system by now.

Did I just get a get-out-of-jail-free card here? Or should I fax the ticket to them?

Sadly, it will come up eventually. :/ processing takes a while sometimes. When I was a jitterbug I was wanted for several months for failing to appear on a dwls case and when I was ready, I went and turned myself in at the jail. They made me wait in the lobby for two hours saying they had no record of me. I wondered what you are wondering and then eventually, they found my warrant and took me in. I would love to hear that your's just vanished though! That would be awesome :)

That is your way out. Information has to be 100% correct on a ticket.

No, it doesn't.

Keep contacting the court. Unless you feel like finding out in a year that you have a warrant out because their systems finally updated.

Contact a lawyer should you decide to try and get out of the ticket because of this.

It will be just marked down as a clerical error.

I got pulled over when I was like 17. I was young and dumb and just blew off the ticket. I didn't see it in the public record of the paper so I thought maybe they didn't file it or something. I went like 11 years without getting pulled over. Then one night I rolled through a stop sign and yep, warrant. The cop was nice and waited for my parents to come get my car. He didn't even cuff me and I rode up front with him.
