I am required to get a non gaming sheriff's card for my new job, however I have a traffic ticket (use of cell phone/electronic device while driving) that has apparently gone to warrant now. Pinks said they can still reduce it to a parking ticket, but I don't have the money to take care of this yet..

Has anyone been in this position as well, or know someone who has?

I don't want to show up and get arrested.

Thanks.

why did you accept a job knowing you would need the card, and knowing that there is a possibility of an issue on obtaining the card? Fix the problem and reapply because if there is a warrant, it will show up in the background check.

Understood.. The description online said only Health and TAM cards were needed, which I have. Interviewer did not mention it until several hours after the interview, when she called to offer the job.

Get a payday loan on the car and pay off the ticket. Then once you get your first check pay off the loan. Do you have a life insurance policy you can borrow from? Do you have family or friends you can borrow from? What about a girl friend..

The bottom line is you have to do something. Once you get out of this going forward save up at least 3 months of your salary and put it in a do not touch fund for an emergency. Look at it this way. You may let a few hundred dollars keep you from earning potentially thousands.. Find a way..........

^^. This.

I had never heard of a situation where one of those payday loan centers would be a good idea, but this qualifies.

If I were you, the first thing I would do is call the court where the ticket is outstanding. Explain that you have not had the money but you want to make arrangements to take care of the ticket. Most courts will work with you to some extent. Just ask what steps you need to take to fix this, and explain the reason you have not contacted them or paid the ticket before now. They will tell you exactly what you need to do. Good Luck!
