    You can go down to the lower lobby of the court/police station and view the pictures to see if you really have a defense. My opinion is that fighting these really aren't worth your time/money. They're not traffic violations and will not affect your insurance. They're the equivalent of a parking ticket (but they're generating huge amounts of revenue for the city). My wife got one. I sent in the check. I believe there is presently a challenge to this practice of taking your picture at the...

    Aaron is right, but if your Neg 1 conviction was a plea bargain from an original DUI, you likely won't get a judge to vacate the Neg 1 until 7 years have passed (because the Neg 1 can count as a prior offense for purposes of mandatory minimum sentencing requirements on your next DUI that occurs within 7 years of the first one).

    I know what your asking, but your terminology is incorrect. A cop doesn't need probable cause (PC) to stop you, merely a legitimate basis to stop you (such as no lights on while the car is moving at night - an infraction). Probable cause is the standard by which the cop must meet to arrest you for a crime(like DUI). The legitimate basis to stop is quite often the cops opening to pursue, for example, a DUI investigation (i.e., cop stops you for no lights at night, then while he's asking you...

    If I'm reading your question right, the young man needs to have a license to keep his job, even though he's not required to drive for his job. Assuming that's correct, the only way to get a license while the restriction is in place is to apply for an Ignition Interlock License (IIL). But without a vehicle on which to install the device, there's no way to prove to the DOL that he has the device installed - hence, his IIL application will be incomplete and he won't be able to get an IIL. DOL...

    If this is a camera generated ticket, it's really like a parking ticket (rather than a traffic infraction) and not worth fighting at all.

    If you elect to represent yourself, you are held to the standard of an attorney and are expected to know and understand consequences. The judge is required to inquire if you are making your plea freely and voluntarily without any threat imposed on you or promises made to you. Assuming he/she did that, your recourse does not look too fruitful.

    Document all your efforts. Go to the clerks window, tell them of your trouble finding comm service places, ask them for a list of places you can go (they may not have one but should make a docket entry of your appearance at that counter and what you wanted).

    DUI is a gross misdemeanor (a crime), not an infraction. Yes, you can defer the insurance infraction while on a deferred.

    Get your copy of the Judgment & Sentence (J&S) document. You should have been given this when you were sentenced. If you don't have a copy, go to the clerk's office and ask for a copy. The J&S will give the correct probationary period and will also say what portion is active vs. inactive. then show that to the clerk and ask her to compare it to the JIS printout (the 10 pages of docket). They'll see the error and correct it in the docket. then ask the clerk what to do about the Revenue...
