RENO, Nev. (AP) - An Oregon man admits he was driving too fast on a rural highway in Nevada five years ago, but he says the state’s wheels of justice turn too slow, and his wallet is a grand lighter because of it.

Robert Larsen of Eugene, Oregon says he ended up paying more than $1,000 in legal fees to settle a $500 fine and bench warrant for his arrest even though he paid the $57 speeding ticket back in 2009.

Larsen told the Reno Gazette-Journal (https://tinyurl.com/omd5pve) the charges and the bench warrant were dismissed on Wednesday, but only because he’d contacted the newspaper about it and hired an attorney.

He plans to file a complaint with the Nevada Commission on Judicial Discipline alleging the court neglected substantial evidence proving he paid the ticket.
