Got a ticket for going 50 in a 20 school zone. Automatic court appearance.
Can I plea nolo and pay fine ahead of time and not go to court?
You must appear in court.
And you would be wise to do so with a lawyer.
Wishing you good judgment, luck and hoping that I have been helpful in answering your question.
First, second and third: No attorney-client relationship exists by virtue of any Q&A with Michael A. Haber, Esq. on Avvo. Fourth: Anything that you post on Avvo (or on similar sites) or on any social media is by its nature public. It is essentially an admission / confession and can be introduced into evidence as a statement against your interest in a subsequent legal proceeding. Once posted you lose any reasonable expectation of privacy, so, as this is an open forum (with no privilege attached), please be extra careful when considering what to post online (forewarned is forearmed.)
There are particular circumstances where there are mandatory court appearances for a moving violation. Generally excessive speed, and speeding in school zones may lead to a mandatory court appearance.
While there is no right to an attorney for these cases, having an attorney present may limit the chances of getting points assessed to the Driver's License.
I hope that this answer helps!
