Q: 2 speeding tickets in one month in 2 different towns can I ask for court supervision on the second ticket?
A: Yes. You have not been convicted of either one yet. But if you r asked, you must be honest. And just because u ask does not mean that your request will be granted.
A: Absolutely. You can always ask for that as a disposition. The end result will vary depending on which county(ies) that the citations were filed in. Larger counties oftentimes grant supervision more than one time even for cases that are close together in time. Contact a qualified attorney who practices in the county where you are scheduled to attend court.
Yes, you can receive court supervision on both tickets but there are a few more wrinkles to it.
You are, for all practical purposes, eligible so long as you have not had court supervision twice in the last 12 months and your offense is supervision eligible. An important distinction must be made in the method of how you receive it. All State's Attorney's Offices I have dealt with NEVER give court supervision for someone who has received a traffic ticket int he past 12 months UNLESS that person makes the request in court. This precludes you from requesting court supervision by mail or any other method which would allow you to avoid a court appearance.
As such, you should expect to request a court date if you would like court supervision.
I hope that helps and let us know if you have any questions.
