Hello my name is Alexandria Jordan and I am asking for help in a tough situation.When going to school,taking care of a grandmother,and working I got in a car accident in a parish known for abuse of the law.The other party is not pressing charges ,but want me to pay for a new Lexus SUV bumper(1,500).I also have a ticket .Lawyers are expensive period but the lawyer has to be familiar with Napoleonic code which is specific to Louisiana .I without family was overwhelmed and could not risk my safety especially in this climate politically by simply going up to court. In this parish you must go to court for every ticket you get.Once given the verdict which will be much higher than usually excessive extent of the law will and has been used.(I've attached a link )I still haven't been able to afford to replace my car as I used credit cards to help buy the first one,because of my lack of financial literacy as well as options.I wanted to go to school so I did naive things. I've been trying for awhile to settle this by trying to save up enough but the cost of life along with me losing my car in the accident won't allow me to get ahead.Honestly without a car or computer it was hard to find and secure work.Where I lived there was no public transport.All proceeds will go towards traveling to and from court,the bumper,lawyer fees(as going alone would leave me vulnerable),and whatever outrageous ticket price they assign to me on the spot. I sincerely want to do right ,but am afraid for my life honestly.All proceeds will be used to settle this I'd appreciate help from those that can give in anyway monetarily, law advice for Louisiana,or just well wishes :)

In 2013, the Gretna police department made 6,566 adult arrests, or a little more than one for every three of Gretna’s roughly 18,000 residents (although arrests include non-residents)

In this tedious process of collections, Jefferson Parish, the county that surrounds Gretna, is a pacesetter. In 2014, the state put out a report urging its court system to be more vigorous in collecting fees, pointing to the parish’s 24th judicial circuit court as a model, thanks to an increase in collections of 1,100% in 14 years. Unpaid fees yield more penalties, which yield the threat of more jail. The fees create ever more incentive for the state to issue more penalties to support its courts. “The criminal justice system exists mainly to make society safer, and it has lost sight of that goal,” Bosworth says. “Instead it has become a system that exists largely to fund itself.”
