Extremely unlikely. If you want to contest it you need to get a hearing officer appointment or arraignment date depending on where it was. A lawyer can help.

No, admitting you were speeding will not get you out of a speeding ticket.

He was pulled over for speeding. He was found to have a case of beer on the front seat and a BAC of .16. Is a lawyer even worth the time and expense on this. We want to get him help but not punished without a purposeful meaning.
Currently it is a 3rd degree offense, 1st time caught.

Yes. He needs an attorney. He will have no idea what he is doing in court and the prosecutor will not help.
