    Here are the point assignments: Speeding (miles per hour over the speed limit): 15-18 MPH: 2 points 19-23 MPH: 3 points 24-34 MPH: 4 points I would appear in court and seek to have the speed reduced to 54 mph. If they agree they will want you to pay a fine anyway. Good luck. 34 MPH or more: 6 points

    There are different types of motions/demands for speedy trial. A statutory demand for speedy trial must be filed within the term of court the case was indicted or the next succeeding term of court. If the demand is timely filed, the case must be tried within the term of court the demand was filed or the next succeeding term of court.

    A person can be charged with a crime if they are the principal or a party to the crime. Therefore, if you aid, abet or encourage someone to commit armed robbery you too may face charges. If someone planned an armed robbery that was carried out, and the evidence is sufficient to satisfy a jury beyond a reasonable doubt, the jury would be authorized to find that person guilty of armed robbery. The penalty for armed robbery is 10-20 years imprisonment, or life in prison. There is no parole (...

    According to your query you did not fail to appear. Further, you state that you have documents that show you resolved the matter before the bench warrant was issued. That being the case there shouldn't be any penalty however people spend time in jail when they get arrested on an outstanding warrant and have to wait to get the matter set down before a judge. It would be appropriate to file a motion to set aside the bench warrant and get the case before a judge as soon as possible. Otherwise...

    If I understand you correctly your license was not suspended when you were pulled over for a broken tail light however when the officer ran your information on his mobile computer terminal it showed you were driving on a suspended license. Based on the erroneous information you were then wrongfully arrested for driving on a suspended license and taken to jail. If that is accurate however the officer who arrested you did so in good faith because of the information that appeared on his computer...

    If the loss amount exceeds $500, theft by taking is a felony and carries a punishment of 1-10 years. In my judgment if the loss amount is anywhere near $500 the charge should be reduced to a misdemeanor. If you can't get the charge reduced you are eligible for first offender treatment if you have never been treated as a first offender and you are not a convicted felon. However some judges are strict about whether they will afford first offender treatment to a person who has had a previous...

    The testimony of a witness is sufficient to establish a fact. That beings said, how many witnesses said they saw you commit the offense? Does the witness have a motive to lie because they want a deal for themselves or they have something against you?
