Officer mistake

I recieve a ticket and there is a fine written on it ,and it is marked that I dont have to appear in court,so I pay the fine. The payment and ticket are sent back to me with letter stating that I must appear in court, so I call the clerk of the court to find out why and she states that since I was going 16 over the speed limit it is mandatory that I appear, and that the officer made a mistake by marking that I do not have to appear, why should I have to pay for the officer's mistake? Is this not a legal document and what it says stands?
