  • Can I get a speeding ticket dismissed due to a medical emergency?

    I was clocked going 72 in a 55 because my fiancé has diabetes and her sugar was 335. The normal sugar level is 97-120. I was rushing to a store to get medicine.

    John’s Answer

    Yes, you could still be ticketed, but perhaps the prosecutor might be willing to drop the charge given the circumstances. Would be a good idea to get some documentation to back up your emergency.

    Good luck!

  • Will my husband be granted probation since this is his first time ever getting into trouble?

    My husband was charged with 3 counts of 1st degree robbery but was approved his youthful offender. He recently went to court and the judge allowed him to apply for probation.

    John’s Answer

    Being charged with three counts of first-degree robbery is a hefty case against your husband. While we don't know the evidence, it's safe to say he's facing very serious charges. It is a positive sign that he's been granted youthful offender status. Good luck.

    John’s Answer

    The best advice we can give you is you need to speak with a criminal defense attorney in your area. If these folks are getting the law involved, you need to be prepared. If they have been harassing you, you may could file charges against them as well. But you really need the advice of an attorney to guide you through this sticky situation.

    Good luck.
