At court I was informed by the judge of this up to 30 days an officer can write additional traffic violations tickets then mail them to you, so my ? Is are the police required to inform you of that at the time of incident took place?
Did not realize it'd expired (thought it was following year). Ticket for this offense says license expiration is 2/28/19. Do I have a case to drop the ticket, since the date on the ticket is not correct (and would indicate license was still valid)? I have since renewed my license (same day,... Read more »
I called the local township to either possibly have a new court date issued, or to voluntarily appear in court the next session. Was informed by the court clerk that a $799 warrant had been issued for FTA. Was told a new court date couldn't be issued, or voluntarily appear at next session... Read more »
It's a range of 0-12 months loss of license and $300 to $1000 in fines if it's a first offense. If second then jail. Your chances of getting lowest grade of that range are with an attorney because it's at the discretion of the prosecutor to extend you a deal or not and then the Court to accept it.

I would like to get an appeal and take this to trial if I could, because I wasn’t really aware what PTI was and I didn’t know that the conviction or charge would still show up as active on my record. I’ve been denied 3 jobs now, and kicked out of school because of this which I believe is... Read more »
Your best bet is to hire a private attorney to take the case to trial because sounds like the public defender's office doesn't feel that they want to spend their time taking your case to trial for whatever reason. If you have a budget for a private attorney then that's your best bet. Good luck!
It depends on the cop. Most will still give you a ticket for unlicensed driver. If you're here for less than a year then you have a good defense to this charge. If more then there's still things that you can do. When I say you I mean with help of an attorney.
Money was confiscated from me, and assumed drug money. I have a receipt showing that I withdrew the same amount of money from a atm,the same day of arrest. Can I get my money back aslong as I have that "Proof"(receipt),and if so,do I have to wait until the case is over with or can a... Read more »
