That doesn't make sense and may be part of the problem.
It was more of an administrative processing fee paid directly to the court, than a fine. The case was really dismissed.
Funny thing is when I go through US Customs in Atlanta or LAX, i get diverted to secondary inspection because there is a "problem with my passport", spend 2 hours there waiting and then get asked about this arrest in '95.
Every single time. And only at these 2 airports. At JFK? Never a problem.
