stevenabsolute,

http://www.courts.state.va.us/

go to the above website, click on court case information, once you click on that select a series of virginia jurisdictions, obviously you want Fairfax County..once you select that, you'll be given the option to select traffic, criminal, civil..obviously you'd want traffic. After you select traffic, type in your name as listed on the page, after that, you should see the time, location to go and charges, also you can pre-pay the ticket if you wiah not to contest it. Importantly, if you're name is not up, give it about a week for the court records people to update the system, your name should be on the list.

other options, call the number listed on the ticket, contact the officer..or simply go by the ticket and go to JDC, chances are the judge might drop the charge based on the officer's negligence. When calling the hotline, it's a gamble considering the wait you might encounter. But, if the ticket states JDC and you're obviously an adult, go the JDC..if the officer shows up to Adult Traffic...the probability the judge drops the ticket is good, because the officer won't be there..however, if he/she is a good cop, they might catch it, and you'll be paying for the charges...well good luck, I'm a county officer and I see this happen sometimes..

The J&DR Court does not have jurisdiction for crimes committed by a person after the person reaches 18, unless the victim of the crime is a family member. Assigning the case to the J&DR Court does not invalidate the charge. The proper course would be to advise the court of the error so the court could transfer the case to the General District Court for adjudication.

Please note I said the proper course, and by that I mean that is what your attorney should do in court. That isn't the only course, and pursuing a different course could increase the likelihood that the charge would ultimately be dropped.

I believe "evasion of traffic control device" is what you are ticketed for when you cut through a gas station (store, bank, whatever) that sits on the corner of an intersection instead of going up to the intersection and making a legal turn.
