My 16 year old son was going 27 over in a working zone with no workers present. A state trooper pulled him over and a court date will be set. Should we get a lawyer? What should we expect?

If he is 16 and wants a chance of continuing to drive, getting a lawyer is all but a must.

Yes, this is a very serious offense and getting an attorney will be required as speeding 27 mph over is a class b misdemeanor and speeding in a work zone complicates it even more. Your son could lose his driver's license and face up to 6 months in jail and up to $1500 in fines. Please contact an attorney in the area. Best of luck.
You need to hire an attorney to assist your son. The sooner your hire an attorney the better.
