Drivers who got citations from the Kansas Highway Patrol and who were given court dates to appear in Douglas County District Court this Friday, Dec. 29, received the wrong date.


Those drivers should instead appear at 8:15 a.m. Friday, Jan. 26, unless their fines and court costs are paid prior to that date, according to a brief news release from the Douglas County district attorney’s office.

The error only applies to KHP-issued tickets, Cheryl Cadue, a spokesperson for the DA’s office, said via email Wednesday.

Anyone who has questions can contact the DA’s office at 785-832-8202 or by email at, according to the release.

“The office cannot provide legal advice but can provide information about scheduled court appearances and discuss potential resolutions to the case,” according to the release.
