A: Those are misdemeanor criminal charges. On a first offense in juvenile traffic court, I usually request that the judge defer the case for six months for dismissal with completion of a driver improvement course and good behavior. Contact an experienced juvenile traffic lawyer for advice. My office offer free consultations at 703-352-9044.
