Trooper Lawrence Requests Reversal of Funds

Des Moines, IOWA --- Trooper Steven Lawrence contacted the Hamilton County Clerk of Court’s Office yesterday, July 29, 2013, and asked that funds previously provided for the payment of his recent speeding ticket be reversed.

Trooper Lawrence told his supervisors, “This speeding ticket is my responsibility and I will take responsibility for my own actions.

“As a citizen and motorist, I want to access the court system and exercise my rights to due process.  When the ticket was paid without my knowledge, those choices and rights were taken away."
