They agreed to dropping 2 charges and pleading guilty to one and getting probation. This extended beyond 120 days and then judge cancels agreement. Shouldn’t the speedy trial motion still have been in effect.

I recieved a speeding ticket for 22 mph over the limit. I have what I think is a decent driving record. Im 32 and haven't had a speeding ticket since I was 17. I plan on asking for court supervision, but was wondering what the probability of having to do traffic school was.

Q: If I missed my pay or appear date for a DUI, then I went to jail for it, can I avoid going to jail for contempt?

I already had a warrant and went to jail. Now I have to go to court for contempt. I paid my bond to get out until my court date. I also paid an extra $50 towards my fine directly after I got out of jail. What else can I do to stay out of jail?

Juan Ooink
Juan Ooink answered on Feb 23, 2020

Call the attorney that assisted you with the DUI. If you had a Public Defender, you can try contacting them. You really should hire an attorney to appear in court with you to increase your chances of staying out of jail. The sooner you hire an attorney, the better.

Q: Can you plead not guilty in court to said unpaid parking tickets from 17 years ago after receiving a citation notice?

My car was stolen in front of the house I was living at back in 2002. I did not file a police report because the car was broken into so many times, I just decided to let things be.

Q: Son got improper passing on right while on I-88. Code 11-704(a). But that road has 2 or more lanes, so how is it illegal

Ticketed by unmarked police car who claimed he was traveling 76 (in 70) while being passed on right. Warning for speeding 1-10 over. Son will request bench trial, but should he NOT request court supervision because of the seemingly bogus "passing on right"?

Juan Ooink
Juan Ooink answered on Feb 18, 2020

It seems to me that there may be more to this story, but on its face, it seems that this ticket will not stand up in court. If he really wants to fight this ticket, he should hire an attorney to assist him. The sooner an attorney is hire, the better.
