A: You are technically allowed two Court Supervisions every twelve months, but there is no guarantee you will receive Court Supervision on a third ticket so close to your prior two. The Judge has the discretion to deny another Court Supervision. If you mail in the ticket and request Court Supervision, you will absolutely be denied. You need to appear in Court and request Court Supervision. Your odds of receiving Court Supervision on this third ticket will increase with an attorney by your side. The sooner you hire an attorney, the better.
