Q: i have convicted of a petty misdemeanor due to speeding 75mph on a 40. I was rushing due to family restrictions.
Have time a curfew at the house and didn't want to arrive home late, so I had to rush to get home fast and, my mom was sick, so I had to take care of her in all ways, so I had to sacrifice myself for hers.
i was trying to know if I can go on probation for the ticket I've received
A: There isn't really a question here. Were you charged with speeding? Have you already paid the fine and consequently plead guilty to the speeding ticket? You need to more clear on what you are asking for anyone to help you.
Thomas C Gallagher agrees with this answer
A: First, the question doesn't make sense - perhaps due to unfamiliarity with legal terms. As a result, you may want to pick up the phone and call a criminal defense attorney for help sorting out your questions. For example, a petty misdemeanor is not a crime, no jail time is possible, and probation is not possible on a petty. There are other conditional dispositions that might be confused with probation, however. Also, "convicted" would normally mean that the case is over and done -- no longer pending at the trial court level. But the rest of the question implies that it is instead a pending charge, not yet resolved in court. So call a criminal defense lawyer for some help sorting it out.
