I got the ticket in stafford tx. Im wondering what I can do to resolve this issue.
You should contact the court immediately to find out whether an arrest warrant has been issued. If so, you may have to post a bond. Many courts will issue warrants shortly after a missed court appearance. Additionally, you may be charged with an additional offense--failure to appear. This is a class C misdemeanor, punishable by a fine only.
I suggest that you contact a traffic attorney that practices in the Stafford area, as he/she would be best informed about the particulars of that court. Most traffic attorneys charge reasonable fees and can save you a lot of time, hassle, and sometimes even money.
I missed the first court date, was issued a no show fine. I pleaded not guilty and to both chargers and will schedule for a pre-court date to file all motions November 2. Not sure what motions to file or the cost, nor how to get a copy of the vide...
As a former municipal court prosecutor, your story is very familiar. Unfortunately, contesting a citation without legal assistance is usually unsuccessful. Do yourself a big favor and hire a local traffic attorney. It will probably save you money in the long run.See question

Hello, I got speeding ticket in Texas having Washington state license. Is there any way i can get DEFERRED DISPOSITION. Basically it should not hit my insurance.
It is possible to obtain a deferred disposition for a moving violation even though you have an out of state drivers license. However, many courts may not choose to offer such a resolution. There are several excellent traffic attorneys that practice in Austin. I suggest that you consult with one of them about the specifics of your citation. In most cases, a traffic attorney will have modest fees and is best positioned to know the ins and outs of a given court.
Best of luck.
I do have cdl license.
It sounds like you have received citations for moving violations and you have a commercial drivers license, correct? If this is the case, I strongly suggest that you consult with a traffic attorney to see if you can keep the violations off your driving record. There are limitations on what a person with a CDL can do the keep violations off your record, and convictions of multiple moving violations can result in suspension of your CDL.See question
On the way home an officer pulled me over for speeding. He had atleast a football feild or more to pull me over before a red light as I began to my destination which was directly after the red light, as soon as i turned my blinker on he turned his...
The delay in pulling you over and issuing the citation does not affect the validity of your citation. As for your warrant, you do not explain why a warrant was issued. I assume that you missed a court date?
I suggest that you contact a traffic attorney to assist with lifting the warrant and keeping the violation off your driving record. You do not want to be arrested and spend a night in jail because a tail light is out or some other minor infraction.See question
Hello I live in DAllas tx and I was recently stopped, arrested, and charged with displaying a fictitious license plate and failure to maintain financial responsibility. I was in jail 2days before bail and was giving time served on the latter charg...
I strongly urge you to contact a traffic attorney to assist with this matter. In most instances, an attorney can resolve the case so that you don't have a conviction and are able to avoid DPS surcharges. Additionally, you may want to revoke your plea in the failure to maintain financial responsibility charge and keep it off your record. By pleading to time served, you will have to pay DPS surcharges. Again, do yourself a favor and at least consult with an attorney.See question
I was traveling to my ranch, and going in to a small town the speed limit quickly goes down. Goes from 70 to 55 to 40. I was gunned going 55 in a 40. This was also on August 28, so I think it's a deal with quotas. Once he came back he seemed as if...
It is common for officers to round down the alleged speed. There are several reasons for this, including: giving the driver a break, ensuring that any margin of error in the speed measuring device is covered should the case go to trial, etc. Reducing the alleged speed is not grounds for dismissal.
As for quotas, Texas State law precludes traffic ticket quotas. While this does not mean that police officers aren't pressured to write tickets, specific quotas are not allowed under the law.
If you want to contest your citation, I suggest that you at least consult with a traffic attorney--there are many excellent ones in the Dallas area and most have reasonable fees.
Best of luck!
