A: There is no way of knowing, as every Judge and prosecutor are different. I would certainly hire a traffic attorney as these tickets can have a very negative effect upon his ability to get a license later, raise your insurance rates and impose some serious fines & court costs.

A: As my colleagues have pointed out, there are a variety of possibilities. The goal is to avoid a conviction on any of the offenses and minimize the consequences. There are options. For example, it may be possible to resolve the matter favorably by having your son complete community service hours. You should seek legal representation to ensure the best possible result.
