There are no likely outcome. Every case is fact specific.
Your best course of action contact a local attorney, either by email or phone, who will protect you and your rights.
The best way to do this is by clicking on the find a lawyer tab on AVVO. Then find one that will offer a free consultation. This benefits you in two way, first and foremost you need to find an attorney who fits well with you and secondly to make sure that they are skilled enough to take on your case. The best case scenario is that you get your questions answered and you get a powerful attorney to help you if you need one.
Counsel is correct, every case is fact specific, and also it is highly relevant in traffic cases a persons driving history etc. It is best to have an attorney that advises you ahead of time and to be at your side dealing with the city attorney. Careless is a four point ticket that will have DMV consequences as well as potential impact on your insurance rates. I would recommend you consult with one of the skilled attorneys on AVVO to see if you can get somebody on board to assist you.
They will probably offer you two or three points and that will be that.
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced attorney to be fully aware of your rights. Finally, please forgive any typographical errors in my note!
