Friend took us to his mom's . What can we do about the ticket
answered on Nov 9, 2022
An Alabama attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. At this point, you likely consulted with a traffic ticket defense attorney or submitted a response. The circumstances of the accident are not fully clear from the brief description, but if you were proceeding on... Read more »
So I was traveling behind at a truck at a safe distance and the truck slammed on his brakes due to a cop being up ahead. Due to him doing this I came up on him and proceeded to slow down so I wasn’t right up on him and the cop pulled me over and gave me a ticket. When I told him why I was so... Read more »

The best way to fight a ticket is to contact a local area traffic ticket attorney (or a few of them) and discuss mitigation options available to you, including whether or nor to fight it---it is much cheaper to pay an attorney now than to have months of higher insurance premiums in the future....

I'm sorry to have to say this but, it depends. Jurisdiction of a county office doesn't immediately end at the county line. There is an area of concurrent jurisdiction. This means that there is a buffer zone where the counties meet in which officers from both counties are well within their... Read more »

What is the subject of the outstanding warrant?
Bankruptcy does not address criminal matters, so I don't see the connection.
Go see a local bankruptcy lawyer for assistance and explanation

Assuming this is a traffic ticket and no great bodily harm was caused, it is highly unlikely you will be detained for your failure to appear if you go to court and answer for the bench warrant. Actually, I would call the court house and ask them and they most likely will tell you the amount of the... Read more »

If you go to trial, the prosecutor has to prove that you are guilty of speeding beyond a reasonable doubt. If the prosecutor can show beyond a reasonable doubt that you were going at least 56 mph, then it does not matter whether the limit is 45 or 55, you are speeding. That said, a savvy traffic...

I'm sorry this happened to you. Law enforcement usually contracts with a towing company of their own choice to handle towing whenever a situation like this occurs.
My court date is next month on the 17th. Can I still have it dismissed or do I have to pay a fee?
answered on Nov 22, 2020
As long as you get it fixed before court. If you’ll show the fixed headlight to an officer with the department of the one that gave you the ticket, they will dismiss it.
The court date is set on November 19th 2020. I live paycheck to paycheck and simply cannot afford this ticket. Since this is my first offense should I show up in court and ask for leniency?

Show up in court and ask for driving school. It only costs $40 bucks instead of $300 for the ticket. After you take the class file the certificate with the court and ask that it be dismissed. It only works if it’s your first ticket. So slow down!! Good luck!!
I was clocked by a state trooper supposedly doing 102 in a construction zone on a sunday. i say supposedly because he had to come over through 2 lanes in steady traffic to get behind me. I am in college and I really cant afford a ticket that big, and the points on my license will make my insurance... Read more »

If you don’t have any prior tickets, ask for it to be dismissed if you take driving school. If you do have prior tickets ask for it to be dismissed on costs. Or ask for a trial because most troopers don’t show up. They will get one continuance. At the next court date, if the trooper is not... Read more »
Tried to get warrant gone but there not taking me because of pandemic. Driver license
answered on Aug 20, 2020
You need to be more specific with your question. What kind of license are you trying to get?
I recently tried to become a driver for a meal delivery service and the background check came back that my license was suspended. I did not know this.
The last time I was pulled over was in, I think, March of 2019. I pulled into a convenience store and a cop pulled in behind me. He called... Read more »

Your license can be suspended for a number of reasons. If you owe back child support it can be suspended. If you had a wreck and didn’t have insurance and owe a money judgement, they can be suspended. Also if you’ve had a failure to appear for a previous traffic ticket your license will be... Read more »
The defendant has never had a case in this small municipal court. Has no open cases anywhere else. Has FTA from 10 years ago in another jurisdiction.
answered on May 12, 2020
Yes you can pay it online or at the clerks office by either mail or in person. If you mail it in, be sure to put the ticket number and your name on the money order.
I received ss disability and I don't get around well, high risk for Corona as well.
answered on May 11, 2020
If it’s been two years you have a FTA warrant and you can’t get that off unless you talk to the judge. Write the judge a letter and tell him you want to pay it, to set aside the FTA. Most of them will do it.

You need to call the General Sessions Court for whatever County you got cited in. Then inquire about your Citation. There is no DOT in Tennessee, so it was some other agency. Read your Ticket verbatim, then talk to the Clerk about what to do about it. If possible, go to Court to see if there... Read more »

A lawyer would need more information before answering the question specific to your case, however, if multiple charges arise from a traffic stop, you can be convicted of those additional charges even if the ticket that was the reason for the stop is dismissed. In these situations, it's best to... Read more »

Yes. Sometimes, if you've gotten your tags updated quickly after the ticket, one or more jurisdictions may dismiss the ticket on payment of court cost - but they are under no obligation to do so.

If he has warrants for failure to pay traffic tickets, it is not the clerks who can waive the requirement that he turn himself in. In order to handle the warrants for you, the best outcome is usually obtained by hiring a lawyer in the county where the warrants are from to help you navigate this... Read more »

Venue is the legal term for where a legal case can be tried. If the crime and arrest were outside the city limits jurisdiction of the Millbrook officer, then your criminal lawyer can file an appropriate motion to dismiss the charge for improper venue.
