I got a ticket on a freeway for going 19 over. Then got pulled over a few days later doing 19 over on a business road. My second one is first and I’m wondering if the first ticket will show up on record since it doesn’t have a verdict yet. Also, what is the best way to go about going to court.... Read more »
You should speak with an attorney to represent you as both of these tickets likely carry at least two points. An attorney may be able to knock down the moving violations. Are both tickets issued by the same municipality? I'd assume not, but it would be worth knowing. As to your question, open...Read more »
You probably do not have to go get the ticket but depending on the seriousness of the charge and the law enforcement's attitude, they will either go to your residence and issue you the ticket or perhaps take you into custody. You have not indicate the charge, but you may want to get an...Read more »
They will make you get a valid license and insurance and pay a fine unless its an OVI suspension, in which case it could be include some jail days. You should consult with an attorney in person or over the phone.
I was stopped behind another car at a 4 way stop heading North.After the car in front of me went across the road,I proceeded to move up to the stop sign when another car heading West was coming to a stop about the same time I was stopping for second time.I waited for her to go across but she...

It sounds like a defensible case. For a definitive answer you're going to need to sit down with an attorney to review the facts in detail and figure out the best game plan. Sometimes these issues continue on if the other driver tries to sue you civilly.
They were driving a rental car. They were pulled over for the tags not matching the car. I understand that only registration has to match the plates. 3 state highway troopers pulled them over and 1 had a dog. They said the dog hit on the car. Was that legal even though the reason they were pulled... Read more »
Unfortunately, then answer is, it depends. If the officers acted in good faith and the information they had would have established sufficient grounds for a traffic stop, it will likely be upheld by the Court. Ultimately, that's an issue that would need to be raised in a Motion to Suppress....Read more »
So I was driving in Mayfield to go get my shot for covid. I didn't want to be late so I was going a bit faster than I should (confident it was 40 in a 35, maybe 42). There was a officer in a drive facing the road so I slowed down to 36. He pulls out and follows behind me for a few minutes till... Read more »
There is no set standard. It depends on where you are, the exact charge, underlying facts, presiding judge etc. Maybe 2-3, maybe 7-8. From what you describe, it sounds like the prosecuting agency requested a continuance of the trial. That is legal. For a more detail analysis of your situation...Read more »

When you say dus, are you referring to driving under a suspension? For any charge, the state has the burden of proof. If they lack the evidence to prove that you were driving it sounds like you need to fight the charge. Doing this by yourself can be very difficult. I recommend finding a...Read more »
Yes I never knew he didn't have his license. This makes no sense to me why not just take the test follow the rules. Young and wild. He bought a car with extra COVID relief $$ and was able to add to the insurance we have Progressive. Please any advice would be greatly appreciated to help me... Read more »
In Cleveland they recently made it known (through a flyer attached to my ticket) that I can plead guilty and not get any points as opposed to pleading no contest and getting points on my license. It was for not making a complete stop at a stop sign.
It sounds like they are offering you to plead to a lesser offense, such as a non-moving violation. If you receive enough points, your license may be suspended and your insurance rates may go up, or you may be dropped by your carrier. You should speak to an attorney about your specific case, but I...Read more »
An Ohio attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for two weeks and time is probably very much of the essence in your actions. If you have not already done so, you should consider reaching out to an Ohio criminal defense attorney. Only an Ohio attorney is qualified to advise you on...Read more »
