i recieved the 2 tickets on a thursday, the police department had my car towed from the site they pulled me over at. i have a clean record, and was planning on scrapping up the money for the ticket, but they wont let me pay, I HAVE to go to court. and i am not sure what to expect?also i went and got the tag, and registration fixed the following Monday. Also as a after thought, the tag was supposedly suspended due to lapse of insurance, i have since called my insurance company, and there has been NO lapse in my coverage since i opened a policy with them. can the suspended tag still be undone?
Go to court with proof that you've cured the issues that you were cited for. Talk to the solicitor and see if they will reduce your tickets.
A plea to the suspended registration requires jailtime, a fine and additional suspension on your license. You need to either get those charges reduced by negotiating with the prosecutor or hire an attorney to do it for you.

You need to hire a good attorney to handle this for you. Only by doing that will you know that you have gotten a good deal. If you go to court by yourself you will be the only one there who is untrained and inexperienced at the law. Call some attorney...many offer free consultation. Good luck to you!

Go to court, and show your registration to the prosecutor. He should reduce the charge to Driving With An Expired Tag. A suspended registration charge requires knowledge that your tag was suspended, and you probably didn't have that. Also, the suspended registration charge will suspend your license if you are convicted or plead guilty.
