    Answered . You need to consult with an attorney regarding New Jersey speeding statutes. In Illinois, speeding in excess of 30 miles per hour a Class B Misdemeanor with a penalty of up to six months in jail and a fine of $1,500, but you would be eligible for a finding of court supervision, which is not a conviction and does not impact your insurance rates. Given the high rate of speed, you may not be facing a simple petty offense.

    Answered . Either apply for the public defender or retain the services of a private attorney to represent you in this legal matter. You are facing many points and the possibility of a suspended license. Do this before your next scheduled court appearance.
