New York, NY asked in Traffic Tickets for South Carolina

Q: Speeding ticket 21mph over on I-95 near Manning SC

Hi. I have a question and hopefully someone can help me with good answers. I got speeding ticket in SC ( 21 mph over on I-95 with my car) and that was on December 7. December 8 I called attorney in SC because i am from NYC an attorney said we will put ticket on jury trial. My first court was on January 13 but attorney said she requested for jury trial. The thing what makes me nervous is when I call attorney office,she said we don’t have yet new date for court. The question is : Is that normal waiting time ,like more then month and we don’t have yet new date? I thought attorney should give me a new date before the first delay court what was on January 13? Thanks guy’s!

A: Depending on the municipality or county where the ticket was written it could be many months before you get a new court date now that your case has been moved to the Jury trial docket.
