(upbeat music) Katie Reyes. Hello. Okay, hey on one of these we have good news for you. You wanna say something? Yes. What happened is, this here, the car, my daughter, and he never gave me back the plates and he give me the ticket. And I don’t know. I cancellation already the plates. Alright, she canceled the plates. Who drives the vehicle? Your honor, On October eighth, I went to Soul Pump Plaza, AAA, Michelle, I think, and we canceled the insurance, we gave her the car– Wait, wait, wait. And she was supposed to give us the plates. Who, who are we talking?
Her daughter. Her daughter? And she never brought us the plates. And like three days ago we received that in the mail, so we went yesterday and canceled the plates. We thought she had registered the car and we didn’t know anything about this, and I understand it’s our responsibility but, that’s what happened, with a truthful heart, I tell you. With a truthful heart? Yes, it is what happened. Have you talked to her about paying these tickets? Totally. And what does she say to you? I don’t know, maybe she has problem. I don’t know what happened my daughter. Does she live with you? Too many tickets and– Does she live with you? No. Too many tickets in few days. It’s terrible. Right now she’s not talking to us, your honor. She’s not. She stopped talking to her mother? Yeah, she’s not– No, she’s mad at me because I told her, and give me my plates and he no listen to me. Alright, so you canceled– You got to cancel. So you canceled the registration– But I went cancel already. You went to the registry? Inspector Carrigan? Yes, your honor, on 12-11 she did cancel these plates. Inspector Carrigan, how do you feel about this? Your honor– You’re a parent now. Yes, your honor. I can tell you this right now, just interesting that just before court I asked Inspector Carrigan if he had any daughters, and he said– No, your honor. He has two sons. I have two boys. Okay, so I’m not sure he understands about daughters, yet, okay, yet. So how do you feel about this? Not yet. Your honor, as being a parent as you know, it’s how can we hold her responsible. She already went above and beyond, canceled the plates, I don’t even know if I would do that to my son without tryin’ to talk to him. I think the bigger issue is trying to have her daughter speak to her on terms. I think these are a secondary matter. Miss Reyes, I’m gonna dismiss the tickets. I’m not gonna hold you responsible. Wow. But just promise me, you will not register that car again in your own name. Exactly. Do I have that promise? I promise. Yeah. It’s not helping no more.
And you, you’re gonna make sure she don’t, right? And she– I insure (laughs). You too, huh? I’m gonna have to put a guardian over these two. Alright, good luck to both of you. Thank you.
Thank you very much. Thank you. Good luck to you. Okay, your motor vehicle has been booted. You have one, two, three, four red light violations, a speeding ticket, and two parking tickets. Is there anything you wish to tell me about these? I just receive it yesterday, I don’t know if I have those, I didn’t know if I take those ticket ’cause there’s not very, send me letter, they never do like. Alright let me ask you a question. Do you drive the vehicle? Me and my husband drive it. Alright, so your husband drives the vehicle, too. So are you telling me that maybe these are violations that he received? He drive the car more than I do. Oh what– But the only thing that I knew that I took is just the uh, that one I take near to the school. I saw the flash but they never send me the, like the letter.
Yeah. To pay that. Yeah. Where is your husband this morning? He’s at school. He’s at school? Mm-hmm. What does he do at school? He’s study criminal justice. So he don’t work? He’s not working. Oh he’s a student. Yeah, just a full-time student. And do you work? Yeah I work part-time. Ah, so you support your husband? Yeah I support him. Oh, do you have any children? I have one children and one on the way. You have, you have $580 worth of tickets and you got a boot on your car. Yeah, I saw this. The boot is a hundred dollars to remove, that’s like $680. What do you want to tell me about this? I just want you to help me with lose it ’cause I didn’t have that much money. To pay all that. ‘Cause I just know that yesterday, about that. How much can you afford to pay today? Like 400. I can have only (mumbles) 400. You have $400? Yeah. And that’s gonna leave you broke, right? Yeah, that’s the only thing I have. That leaves you no money for food, no money for anything. Well I’m not gonna do that to you. I’m gonna release the boot. Thank you. I’m gonna charge you $200 for the offenses. Thank you so much. And a $100 boot fee. Which is $300. Thank you, I appreciate it. Now, if you can’t afford to pay the entire 300 today, I’ll release the boot for a lesser amount. Can you afford to pay the 300 today? Yeah I only have 200, I was gonna make a payment plan but, but I’m gonna pay the 300 today. I’m gonna release the boot on $200. Thank you. I’m not gonna leave you broke, okay? I mean, these are parking tickets. You didn’t do anything serious in life, and I understand your situation. Yeah.
I understand you’re havin’ a baby. We don’t want to upset you, we want the baby to be happy. Thank you so much.
Okay. Are you havin’ a boy or a girl? I didn’t know yet. Oh. I’m only three month. If it’s a boy, maybe you can name him Francesco. What is (laughs)? Francesco, you like that name, Francesco? Francesco, that’s a good name. You like that name?
Yeah I like that. Maybe if you name him Francesco you pay nothing, I mean, you know. (laughing) I’ve been trying for years to get somebody to name their baby Francesco, ’cause that’s my name, Francesco. Okay (laughs). Of course they Americanize it, they call me Frank, like Frank ’cause I, But Francesco is like a song, Francesco, right, Francesco.
Francesco, okay. Not bad, right? Yeah that’s good. (laughs) Alright, I’m not gonna leave you broke so it’s gonna be $200 to release the boot, and, the whole total was 680, with the 580 and the 100 it’s 680. So I cut that in less than half. Then how much can you pay a week after that? I can pay the 300 today. If you can’t afford to pay it, don’t pay it. You do what you want. If you don’t want you can pay $10 a week after that.
