  • I was informed that I had a speeding ticket in Ohio last year. I have not been in Ohio in 5+ Years. How do I get this off record

    Insurance record said I had a 3 point speeding ticket in Ohio last year. How could I possibly prove I was never in Ohio?

    First you need to get a drivers license abstract from the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles to see if the mistake is the insurance companies or was a mistake at either the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles or in the court system. If the charge is actually on your driver's license abstract with Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles you need to determine what court sent the record to the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles, in other words where do the records indicate as the location of the offense. You would next want to contact that court and get a copy of the court file to see if you can prove just on the basis of the court file that it was not you. If you cannot find a way to prove it was not you on the basis of the court file a motion will have to be filed to set aside the judgment. An attorney may be able to talk with the prosecutor for that court and get an agreement to set aside the ticket if you can provide convincing proof you were not in Ohio that day. Ie work records etc.

  • 10 miles over the speed limit, 1 light out, and failure to change address on lic: I have an arrainment date set. what do i do?

    I don't have a criminal record nor have I had any traffic volations in 14 years. I have a receipt for new light bulb, address is now changed - do I still have to plea guilty to those two charges? What can I do about the speeding part?

    I would suggest pleading not guilty to everything regardless of whether you may believe you are guilty of some of the charges and contact an attorney. In all likelihood an attorney can get some of the charges dismissed or reduced. The points from these charges can greatly affect your insurance premiums so it is probably worth it.
