    This is a serious matter, even in a court known for making deals. If returnable to NCTPVA 16 Cooper St. Hempstead, they are not likely to make you an offer on this, so you will have to mark it for trial.

    Much depends on where you got this ticket. There are many courts in NY state and they can be very different. By this time, your NY driving privileges are certainly suspended. Get your driving record on line from DMV to find out where you are suspended. Then, if there is no default conviction, your local traffic attorney may be able to help get the charge reduced or dismissed.

    This is a classic entertainment law "Catch 22." You want to pitch an idea. To protect yourself, you want them to sign a non-disclosure agreement. Problem is they wont do that - not unless you are already someone with significant clout in the industry. As a second problem, you should realize that entertainment lawyers, networks, producers and other media pros are all in this to make a living, and your business model (giving it away for free) does not provide much incentive.

    NY doesn't expunge anything. You are in danger of deportation. Contact an experienced criminal defense lawyer AND an immigration attorney right away.

    While Staten Island is the most difficult of TVB Courts, the mistake on the car is something in your favor. Unfortunately TVB courts rarely care about identification of the car.

    You must appear before a judge to vacate the warrant, but you must also check with your local DMV as your license is probably suspended too. Driving while suspended can get you arrested as well.

    If this is returnable to NCTPVA 16 Cooper Street, you will never get a dismissal for the cop not showing. The will simply keep you on the trial calendar (for years if necessary) until you plead guilty or take a deal. I had a case on the trial calendar for over 3 years recently. They don't want to prosecute you here - they just want you to pay the fines and surcharges they heap on you. The number of cop cars is irrelevant, like my colleague has said.

    Much depends upon what you are pulled over for. If, for example, you are pulled over for reckless driving or DWI, this could expose you to criminal charges and possible immigration issues if you are convicted. Being pulled over for a busted tail light or a cell phone ticket - not so much.
