Thompson agrees to settle unpaid traffic ticket, acknowledges violation
State Rep. John Thompson has paid $100 to settle his unpaid ticket stemming from a July 4 traffic stop in downtown St. Paul.
Thompson, who faced having his driver's license suspended for failing to pay a $286 ticket for three months, accepted the settlement Wednesday during a legal hearing in Ramsey County. The terms required him to admit he was in violation of driving after suspension. He must avoid any driver's license violations for a year.
