Should i go for Jury trial ?. as i have been given 2 days jail. but am sure i was not that high.
As this is misdemeanor .. will it effect my H1B visa. or i have to mention about this jail in future if asked. Can this jail be avoided?
You need an attorney. Do not go to trial without one against a prosecutor. You will be way out of your league and will almost ensure a bad result for yourself. As for your visa, you will need to consult with an immigration attorney about that.
If you have a lawyer you should ask him/her if you should take any given offer. If you do not have a lawyer I suggest you hire one to help you. Speeding charges can carry jail time, while a fine is more common jail time has been given before and is allowed. For instance under the state statue 304.0010 violating the posted limit by 20 miles an hour or more is a B misdemeanor and can carry up to 6 months in jail. Still 105 mph is on the very high end of speeding. A lot depends on where and which statue you were charged with. There can be a lot of differences between state statues, municipal ordinances, and county ordinances. Of course it all depends on where you were speeding and if you prosecuted in
The immigration question is different from the traffic question and should be asked of an immigration attorney.
