Bourbonnais, IL asked in Traffic Tickets for Illinois

Q: I got a speeding ticket back in 2017. I went to the courthouse and paid the ticket and asked for court supervision.

I paid the additional costs for court supervision and they said I would have to attend a class and they would send out a schedual which I never got and now the ticket is on my record. Is there anything I can do to get it removed

A: A Motion to Vacate must be filed with the court to bring the case back to court. You can explain the situation to the Judge and ask that the Court Supervision be reinstated and the permanent conviction be removed. You wil have to get the trafic school done. it would be wise to do it before the court date
