    From what you have said, the officer cited you for a 3111a violation (No points) rather than a speeding violation 55 in a 35 (4 points). Seems like you have already gotten the break. The legislature raised the fines/costs on the particular offense and I doubt the Judge can reduce it. You can be put on a payment schedule.

    The short answer is, "yes. They can charge your son". However, Iagree that based on the facts you have given, no charges should be filed against him. Always a good idea to have the name and number of an attorney ready if needed.

    I agree with Mr. Kenny. It may be possible to have the supervision transferred to Florida (if Florida agrees), or ask for the probation to be terminated. Talk to your arrorney asap. Do not move without express permission from the PO and/or the Court.

    Since you are in "the process" of finding an attorney, redouble your effort to retain experienced counsel in your location. Ask that attorney about this. Stop wasting time looking for advice on the internet.

    I agree with both of my colleagues in this. There is, by rule, a thirty day appeal period a summary offense. But there amy be a possibility nevertheless. As stated, expungement is a long process and never a sure thing. Retain a lawyer who is experienced in this area of the law.
