I work for a federal institution in KY. Parking is abysmal or non-existent because we are located right in the middle of a university campus. To make a long story short, I was issued a citation for parking in a reserved space(Federal). These spaces are reserved for oversize vehicles or contractors during normal business hours(8a-5p). I do not work normal business hours (4a-8a)and was given verbal permission from the chief of security to park there as long as I moved the vehicle before commencement of normal business hours. One of the officers gave me a permit to park there for the duration of my contract. I park there daily and the area is regularly patrolled, yet I have only received 2 citations to date. We went to trial and the judge issued a continuance and requested that the attorney contact the former chief, who has been retired almost 2 years. What if he can't remember or says no? The judge said something about PERJURY?? Isn't that just my word against his? Will I go to jail if that's the ruling? Can I change my plea to "guilty w/an explanation"? They do not keep copies of these permits and I don't know the officer who gave it to me. I know that there have been several personnel changes;is that a factor?? Help! It's just a $25 ticket, but I can't afford even that, since I've gone to part-time.
