I'm 16 years old and I recently got my first ticket. One for not stopping correctly on a stop sign, and second for not having a driver license. I'm taking a driving license class if I take my driver license to court would the judge give me credit? Or do I wait for him to tell me what to do? I'm almost done with my course should I just take it with me to court and see what he says?
You need to hire a local attorney to represent you. In many circumstances showing up with a valid license is enough to have the charges dismissed, but that isn't always the case.
Nothing in this message should be construed as legal advice or the creation of an attorney-client relationship. This is meant to only be a general guide and not a substitute for an actual consultation with an attorney.
Having taking care of your license issue, the prosecutor may agree to dismiss that ticket as a sort of "compliance dismissal." Also, it's possible to ask for a "plea in bar" where the prosecutor dismisses the driver's license ticket in exchange for your plea to the stop sign ticket. But if you're going to take a plea on the stop sign ticket it has to be "deferred" so that you don't get a conviction for it, don't accumulate points on your driving record, and also don't risk higher insurance rates. Hire a traffic ticket attorney in that area.
