Q: what happens if supervision is denied after pleading guilty to speeding and paying the ticket?
I got pulled over for speeding and the cop told me to pay the ticket online and apply for supervision. I went online, paid my ticket and asked for supervision. The cop had said I didn’t need to show up to court. I just got a letter in the mail saying the supervision was denied. What does this mean? Am I going to get arrested?
A: You are not going to get arrested, but this will not show up as a conviction on your record and your Insurance Company will be able to see this ticket, which will likely lead to an increase in premiums. In order to clear this up, you need to file a Motion to Vacate Judgment, give proper notice to the correct prosecutor and show up on the hearing date for the motion. You may want to consider hiring an attorney to assist you with this matter. That attorney will be able to prepare the Motion to Vacate, file it, give proper notice and appear in court on the hearing date. You need to do this right away.
