    The answers posted are correct, and excellent. They are correct because you asked what the likely punishment is, and a lawyer can only tell you this after careful review of the case. It is noteworthy, however, that the maximum punishments are as follows: Misdemeanor: 1 year in county jail. Felony: 16 months - 2 years - years; state prison as the lower, middle, and upper terms. Again, as a first offender, you will not get anywhere near this. But, it is important to know. Best,...

    I am not sure what is meant by the previous posted answer to your question. A citation does not equal an infraction. Most misdemeanors, like yours, are the result of "citations" that turn into misdemeanor complaints, filed by the DA. I agree with the second part of the previous answer in that it is not the crime of the century. However, as to "what will happen" that depends on quite a bit. It depends on your prior record, how soon the new offense occurred relative to your being placed...

    You can always hire your own lawyer and that will, in effect, fire the "free attorney."

    The question is quite vague, but here goes: Court appointed lawyers are just like private lawyers. Open the phone book and you will find some outstanding lawyers and, on the same page, you will find some horrible ones. Same thing with court appointed lawyers. It will depend on who you get. But it doesn't even matter. You state you can't afford a private lawyer, so you don't have the option of hiring your own lawyer.

  10. Is it possible to pay off a lawyer to completly get rid of a speeding ticket?

    No more than it is possible to pay a doctor to "completely get rid of" your cancer. Lawyers. like doctors, try to achieve an outcome. Some are better than others. NONE can guarantee results. Beware of the lawyer who does.
