Q: I am 16 and got a ticket for 21-25 over but also says I was going 62 in a 25. I am worried about what will happen.
I have to appear in court and I have nothing on my record, it was in a lomborghini as well, not sure if that will help or hurt the situation.
A: This is potentially a misdemeanor offense. You should consult an attorney as soon as possible.
Juan Ooink agrees with this answer
A: 62 in a 25 is 36 over the posted speed limit which is a Class A Misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail and up to $2,500.00 in fines not including mandatory assessments. This is not a normal traffic ticket. This is a criminal offense. If you are convicted, it will show up in background checks for the rest of your life and cause you issues with education, employment, housing and financing. You and your parents need to hire an attorney to assist you with this matter. The sooner you hire an attorney, the better. The attorney will need to time to work on your case. That attorney will likely try to have the ticket amended to a Petty Offense which is not a criminal offense. Hire a criminal defense attorney now.
