A: Since you are 6 days away from the 90 day mark - wait out the clock and allow the current court supervision to sunset satisfactorily (ie; pay off fines, complete traffic school, etc. ) on day 90 before you answer to this current speeding ticket.

A: I doubt it they are going to file a petition to revoke the first supervision, based upon the new ticket, within six days. Ask for supervision again

A: Most likely, they won't be aware of the new ticket before your current supervision terminates. Therefore, it is unlikely that they will violate your current supervision. Also, technically, you can receive court supervision twice within 12 months. It will likely require a court appearance on the new ticket to request supervision. You may want the assistance of an attorney. If you pay the ticket it will result in a conviction.

A: You are allowed two Court Supervision every 12 months. Typically, Court Supervision will not violate another Court Supervision. In this case, it is not likely that they will will revoke your current Court Supervision due to the time frame. You should appear in court on the new ticket and request Court Supervision. You should also consider hiring an attorney to assist you with this new ticket considering your last ticket was just a few months ago. Hiring an attorney will increase the odds that you get Court Supervision a second time.
