First you want to make sure you enter a plea of not guilty and request a hearing. Secondly make sure you hire an attorney to go to Cpurt with you. Many times an attorney can talk with the officer and/or Assistant District Attorney depending on the Court and work something out so you will hopefully avoid points. Good luck.
The best advise I can provide is that you retain an experienced criminal defense attorney to represent you at the hearing. The attorney will know the law and may be able to speak with the police officer and plead in court that the charge should be changed to a non point violation. Good luck.
Because careless driving carries 3 points and you have a prior 3 point offense, you may face a departmental hearing if convicted.
While the officer may agree to a lower charge, it is often difficult to negotiate such a resolution by yourself.
Please note the Lancaster District Attorney will NOT negotiate a lower charge on appeal. Contact a lawyer to assist you.
