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.
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?

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.
