I got pulled over for speeding. The cop told me i was going 62 in a 45. I most likely was going over the limit. however on the ticket he wrote 62 in a 40. ive never had a ticket before so i have no idea what the 4 extra other charges were either. The officer made note to tell me if I were to plead not guilty he would let the judge know i cooperated fully. Should I go in and fight it or just pay the fine? I need a clean record for my job as I am required to drive.
There is no question that you should plead not guilty and request a hearing. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. I suggest that you hire a local attorney who can explain to you the significance of the tickets that you have not identified, as well as what to do to make sure that the speeding ticket is reduced to a non-point offense.
The money you invest in hiring an attorney will be well spent since these things tend to haunt you for years.
answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship.
Plead not guilty, and immediately get in to meet with a local criminal/traffic offense attorney who can help you out at your hearing date. This is your best way to get a result that could leave you with a decent driving record.
