You haven't said what you were charged with. There may be a way to avoid points, but we need more information. If you really are concerned with points consider hiring a mm experienced tactic attorney to handle it for you. Attorneys get better offers than other people. Just a fact.
Young drivers are often given a significant reduction if they are willing to complete a defensive driving course. You should plead not guilty and ask to speak to the prosecutor about the circumstances of your ticket, or hire an attorney. Also, it doesn't usually pan out to make excuses.
Presuming you have a new ticket, an attorney would have the best chance of obtaining a reduced plea bargain. It is possible to receive no points on a second ticket but more information is necessary to give you a more accurate assessment
If you received a ticket, I recommend hiring an attorney to handle the matter for you. If you decide to represent yourself, bring proof of your completion of the course with you.

Your chances of a favorable outcome increase with an attorney; however, you may be able to get the original charge reduced without an attorney. On your court date, you should have an opportunity to speak with the prosecutor regarding a possible reduction.
Most traffic courts are will to cut deals with motorists such as the Nassau TVB. One in particular, Queens North TVB, will not cut such deals. I am assuming your ticket is in the Nassau TVB and therefore you should get a favorable deal. However, you did not state what you got a ticket for. In these traffic courts they give considerable reductions to people who have an attorney even for the simple fact they have an attorney. Hire an attorney who is well known in that TVB for the best deal possible.
Your question is unclear. Have you been convicted of speeding and now facing another charge or is the speeding ticket the current charge? You must realize the judge does not decide whether you get points. Points are based on the conviction, which may be the result of a plea negotiation with the prosecutor and approved by the judge.
