I am young person whom still lives at home with my parents. My mom is a RN at Singing River Hospital and my dad is a City of Gautier employee. Not too long ago i got pulled over for expired tag for my second time(YES, I know I need to get it renewed). The first time I had to set up a payment plan for my ticket and by the time I recieved the second ticket it was time to pay my $100 for the first one. NOW the big deal of this story.. My dad being a city employee saw me going into city hall for court, which is now at 1:30 in the afternoon, and he asked me what i was going to court for. I told him what it was for but today, one day later my dad walked into city hall and talked to the court clerk who is one of my dads co-workers and friends and she gives my dad every single bit of my information! From ticket uno to me having to pay $100. Is this right?!?! I'm sure it can't be legal because city employees have said to me it wasn't! I'm seriously considering going to city hall tomorrow and filing a complaint on this employee!!

Any charges filed against you are a matter of public record. Anyone at any time can request to look at the court dockets because they are PUBLIC information. I can understand you wanting to keep your business private, but criminal charges, no matter how small, can be accessed. Just look in the crimes section of the paper, names and everything are included. And no, it doesnt make any difference that it is just a traffic offense. What was done may have been upsetting to you, but it is certainly not illegal.
