Q: Over 21, clean record. Was cited as going 94 in a 60 on highway (34 over so a Class B) What next?
As above, clean record. Cop cited me for 2,500$ but class B only denotes 1500$ max. Is there a way I can keep this off my record as I need a clean background check for work.
A: Agg speeding 26-34 over is a class b misdemeanor. Technically, the offense can be punished by up to 6 months in jail and a $1500 fine. In many of these cases, it is possible to avoid a criminal conviction on your record. It may even be possible to reduce this to a petty offense. Contact an attorney directly to discuss the specifics and your options. Many of us offer free consultations.
A: This is a Class B misdemeanor. Depending on your specific facts, an attorney may be able to reduce this to a petty offense.
A: The $2500 has nothing to do with the fine. You need a lawyer who understands the law.
