If I ask for a reset if there a chance of my case getting kicked to criminal court instead of remaining in traffic court? And if it does would it matter in sentencing?
Yes there is a chance it would get sent to the criminal complex. It does matter in sentencing. The traffic court judges like to resolve cases without sending them to the complex and this can work to your advantage. Blood draw cases can be quite technical, please give me a call to discuss.
You're typically better off staying in traffic court unless the case needs to be set for jury trial, in which case your attorney would need to transfer it out to the complex on 49th Street. You should consult an attorney before your pretrial next week to avoid the risk of your case being transferred out.
