I was stopped for driving with a fraudulent inspection sticker .. I had no clue the sticker was not real.. The cop gave me 6 tickets .. wat should I expect in court .. do I need legal counsel?
Much more information is needed such as what were all the tickets for. But probably with 6 tickets no matter what they were for you should get a lawyer. Most of us Traffic Ticket Lawyers offer a free in office consultation, I suggest you set one up.

I depends on what the tickets are for, but 6 tickets means there are probably charges that involve points or possible suspension, you should at least consult with an attorney to see what you are looking at in terms of points, fines and or suspensions.
These are VERY expensive tickets and some towns just are fed up with the locals who give out such stickers. They will want you to identify who you bought the sticker from (or the car with the sticker) and you will still need a lawyer.

More information is needed. With that many tickets there has to be a huge amount of fines and/or points. I suggest speaking to an attorney at least.
I would certainly look into consulting with an attorney at the very least. Without more information I cannot say whether you absolutely need one, but it doesn't hurt to speak to a lawyer. Most of us offer free consultations.
This information is presented as a public service. It should not be construed to be formal legal advice nor considered to be the formation of a lawyer/client relationship. I am licensed in New Jersey and my answers are based upon the law in that jurisdictions. My answer to any specific question would likely be different if I were to review a client's file and have the opportunity to interview the client. Accordingly, I strongly urge you to retain an attorney in your jurisdiction with respect to any legal matter.
What were the other tickets? Were they moving violations? What is your driving history like? Are you at risk for having points assessed to your license?
These are questions you should address with an attorney in private before going to court and trying to handle this on your own. You probably need legal counsel, but you need to talk more about what happened before going to court. Do this before your next hearing date.
