We frequently come across persons who are in our system two or more times, with different ways their name is spelled (Chavez vs.Chaves, De La Rosa vs. Delaros ), license numbers, dates of birth, or social security numbers. This can come from transposed numbers for identifying information on citations, poor record keeping from other sources, or simple human error.

This court has made it our policy to make every attempt to prevent misinformation being sent to other agencies, to avoid causing negative complications for the defendant.
