I’m not sure I understand your question when I read the other attorneys answer. If your son was given a ticket and he was not driving the vehicle that yes the case should be dismissed. However if your son was driving and he did in fact get the ticket points could lead to increased insurance...Read more »
Was asked to get something for co-worker on break and I thought the card that I had used was the co-workers card and put it in my pocket and used it. Ended up that it wasn't my co-workers card after all. Since I was last used by card holder at my place of work they matched up the video... Read more »
It is a felony of the 3rd degree. Maximum is 3.5-7 years. Call a lawyer. The lawyer can call the police officer to see if charges are pending.

Do NOT speak to the police without a warrant. More information is needed to give you advice. Did you know the person whose credit card it was? If not, you could be charged with felonies, including access device fraud, theft, identity theft. If you knew the person, if they say you did not nave...Read more »
You can be mailed a citation so long as the officer files it in court within 30 days of the offense. If you do receive a citation, plead not guilty as you would be looking at a 4 point offense at that speed. Many times we can go to court and get the speed and the points reduced, hopefully to a zero...Read more »
Yes, it could be considered a "fatal error" if it is incorrect in certain situations. You may want to fight it based on this or in the alternative you may want to seek a reduction of the ticket to a zero point offense so that it will not affect your insurance. Either way, an experienced...Read more »
The total fines amounted a total of $348. $246 from the careless driving & $102 from the speeding. I was wondering if there was any way to not have my license suspended & a decrease of the money owed, because I don’t believe there was carelessness involved seeing as there was no cars in...

You will likely lose your license at that speed. First, plead not guilty on both citations and you will get a court date. Second, hire a lawyer immediately to go with you to court. There may be options to reduce the tickets so that you do not lose your license. You did not say what county this...Read more »

It is a good thing that you decided to contact an attorney before pleading guilty. Yes it is four points that will appear on your driving record.

Yes, he is permitted to mail it to you, so long as the ticket is filed with the court within 30 days. You did not say what the offense was for and you should be sure to talk to a lawyer to determine if and how many points the ticket will add to your license.

Hello, I don’t think any attorney will be able to tell you over and Internet question and answer whether or not you will go to jail. What I can tell you is that a felony is a very serious offense and whether you go to jail depends upon many factors including the facts of the case and whether or...Read more »
You have to present your case to the officer first, and if he agrees, then to the judge. Your odds are better if you get a lawyer as there are better tickets than 3111. Also, if you have a lawyer, the lawyer may be able to attend court without your son having to go. Good luck.
Yes, so long as the ticket is filed with the court within 30 days it can be mailed.

I was driving to work the other morning (very early, it was pitch black) and I noticed an officer following me for a few miles. They eventually pulled me over and used a handheld device to check the tint on my back, driver- side window. I have absolutely 0% tint on my windows, so I believe they... Read more »

Second thing you need to do is contact PennDOT immediately and...Read more »
They make you pay the fine first which acts as collateral for the hearing. In NJ you get a court date right on the citation. In PA you have to either plead guilty or not guilty first. Almost every moving violation in PA transfers to NJ so I would advise you to plead not guilty and then go to court...Read more »
Plead not guilty because there is a 6 month suspension if he gets convicted of reckless driving. Get an experienced lawyer to go to court with him for the best chance it working out. I always recommend to my client to take a defensive driving class to make it look better. Good luck!
Do not pay the fine online as you will be pleading guilty and points may be assigned to your license. If you were guilty of any speed over 6 miles over the limit and you are looking at anywhere from 2 to 5 points. Additionally if it is a high-speed case you could lose your license. Before you pay...Read more »
Sounds like the officer made a mistake by putting your name as the driver of the vehicle. If that is the case then there’s a good chance you can get it dismissed.
