A New Jersey woman spent a night in a New York City jail after police discovered she had a decade-old traffic summons.
Krystle Garcia told NBC New York that she was arrested Thursday at a Manhattan checkpoint. Garcia was 17 when she received the forgotten summons. She was ticketed because she did not have her insurance card with her when she was pulled over.
Garcia claims she received and paid other tickets in New York after that and was even able to renew her New Jersey driver’s license and registration without any issues.
Garcia sat for 14 hours in a cell. She says, “It was horrifying, I sat in a holding cell with people who had gun charges, who were fighting each other.”
Garcia settled in court last week and agreed to pay a fine of $155. Her record is now clean. She is still upset, saying it was humiliating spending a night in jail with people who actually committed crimes.
