Q: I was pulled over for doing 16 over (71 in a 55) .... Court is 01/21. I have no $.. will i go to jail? I just had a baby
I will pay the fine or traffic school when i get paid. But im on maternity leave until feb 1st. I won't get paid from work with disability for being off for at least 2 more weeks and I'm about to spend my last $ on groceries. I just don't wanna go to jail for not having money.
A: If you have a pending court date you can appear for that court date via phone call or zoom and enter your plea of not guilty and pass the case for another date. I would tell the Court your situation. You should not go to jail as long as you appear for your court date or have an Attorney appear on your behalf.
