    Kevin’s Answer

    If you want to resolve this case your only option is to appear. Nothing is set in stone and your best bet is to hire a lawyer to make the best argument possible to keep you out of jail and get you back on your payment plan if you cannot make a payment in full.

  • Is there a way to request a trial for my traffic ticket without posting bail? Do I have to go to court for arraignment first?

    For California courts. Is there a way to request a trial without posting bail or without going to court for an arraignment and pleading not guilty. I want to be able to do everything in one day. Pled not guilty and have my trial.

    Kevin’s Answer

    If you want to fight your ticket/have your trial, you cannot take care of everything in one day. Officers are not present at arraignment. The only possible scenario for you to take care of everything in one day is to plea to the violation at your arraignment and pay the fine, in which you would waive your right to a trial.

    Possibly, depending on the agency that conducts the background check. However, with limited exceptions, employers cannot inquire about cases that have been expunged pursuant to PC 1203.4. See California Code of Regulations 7287.4(d)(1)(B).
