My Son, who is 17 years old, will be pleading not guilty to a stop sign ticket he received in the Village of Munsey Park, Nassau County. He has a court date September 10th at 9:00 am. I have never received a ticket or had to go to court, so I do not know what to tell him to expect. I have to work and will not be able to go with him. He will have to miss school that day to go to court. If he pleaded guilty, it would have been four points on his liscense and $200? Should I hire a lawyer? He has only had his liscense seven months. I am going to send him with a copy of his "NYS Dept. of Motor Vehicles Student Certificate of Completion" from his driver's eduction class. After the police officer gave the ticket to my son, he felt badly and said to fight the ticket. What is your advise?
