  • How is it beneficial to go to traffic school for a seatbelt violation if it's a non point violation?

    The letter from the court gives me the option of paying the fine of $162 or going to traffic school for $216. Why go to traffic school if the infraction doesn't go on my DMV record.?

    Chris’s Answer

    It's not. Don't waste your time, money, and don't burn a "traffic school" session when you don't have to.

  • Can judge exhonerate a bond at an arraignment? No charges yet. But if charges, then new bail if old bail is exhonerated?

    Arrest, no charges. Second arraignment today, still no charges. If judge asks if we want to exhonerate bail, should we? Couldn't the DA then bring new charges on the old arrest or not notify us of charges, then a bench warrant could be issued a...

    Chris’s Answer

    Yes you can have the bail exonerated. That bail is based on what the police ask for when you were arrested. If you posted, and the da doesn't file charges, then you can have it exonerated. If the da chooses to file charges, most likely they will notify you by way of a Notice to Appear (not a bench warrant), and you may be required to post bail again. By that time, however, you should have an attorney appear with you to argue for OR release or lower bail.

  • PC 851.8 Factual Innocence Does "bad information" from informant qualify as reasonalble cause/belief I committed the offense?

    What is the process to request the police officer put his verbal statement regarding this in writing?

    Chris’s Answer

    No, because their arrest of you, even on false information, is covered by "good faith." You would have to show that the information was false, and that they knew it was false - how are you going to do that? Sounds like you need to fight the case. Get a local attorney to assist you.
