We all know that jail is not supposed to be a fun place, and never is.. But these guys are soooo ridiculously unorganized that it is getting way out of hand and starting to seem pretty corrupt. Either that or they are really just that dumb. I had a traffic ticket for no seatbelt and failure to change address on my ID out of Travis County, in which I was on a payment plan of $90 a month to pay it off. I missed 2 months of the plan in a row, in which there was only $125 left to pay. Williamson County pulls me over for going 3 miles over the limit and takes me to jail for these unpaid tickets out of Travis County. Now.. all of this seems somewhat normal policework. UNTIL I GOT TO THE WILLIAMSON COUNTY JAIL...
First off, I understand the officers are not supposed to be friendly in jail, but Jesus Christ! Im here for $100 worth of no seatbelt ticket! After sitting there for nearly 4 hours waiting for them to finally call me up, they're telling me I owe them over $600!! They would not listen to what I was saying when I explained that I was on a payment plan with Travis County on these tickets, and had paid most of them off. They just kept acting all hard and telling me they would only accept in full, or I could sit there for 2 weeks. I had work in the morning and a daughter to get home to, what other option did I have? After getting a friend to bring up a $600 money order in the middle of the night, which was their ONLY payment method, I finally get out of that horrid place. So unorganized
This was over a year ago, and I didn't feel the need to post a bad review about it. Until now, when my best friend is going through the EXACT SAME THING! He had a ticket from 4 years ago that was paid off in full, and now they are claiming that he never paid the ticket and that they are going to stop at no end to come to his work, school, and home to collect they're money. These guys are ruthless, and it is ridiculous and pathetic
