Will they be harder on me
Your attorney can play a big role in preserving you record, freedom and drivers license so hire one today.
Contact one or two Avvo lawyers Today, The reason is that the answers herein are not intended to be Legal Advice and do Not establish an Attorney-Client Relationship. In no way, shape, or form does the Internet assist a person in competently defending against criminal charges, and in fact can harm one's defense.
You can still just pay the fine without appearing in court. But if you do that, then you're convicting yourself of the crime, it will be on your record, and you'll have your driver's license revoked. Instead, hire a lawyer to help you try to fight the case and keep it off of your record.
Do not rely on this information. My office accepts clients from Avvo, but this initial impression is not protected by any privilege and is not attorney-client communication. You should consult a lawyer promptly about your legal matter.
Multiple prior posts contain gross error. Of course, prior same or similar offenses factor into a decision as to appropriate penalty. I do urge you to secure an experienced attorney at this time so she may assist you. Tricia Dwyer Esq.
