When I Google this, it tells me the maximum jail time is 6 months. But when I look up the statue on several websites, all it says is there is a 50$ fine. Where can I find accurate information regarding this?
No. General Sessions is not a Court of Record such that amendments can be made orally by the DA, and the Judge annotates the Citation. You can tactfully inform the DA of the mistakes while asking for some type of Diversion or Dismissal.

Nothing you have stated makes any sense. Hire a competent lawyer to represent you today. If you do not satisfy the Rule of the Road violation, your license will be suspended. Obviously you do not understand what is going on.

This is a public forum so you may have already messed up your Son's Case. Since he apparently stopped, it might be pleaded down. But your Son (or the so called friend) may have said too much. Son should hire a lawyer today, and stay out of trouble.
This was a complete mistake as my wife and I were lost. It was July and in California Schools have not been in session in over a 1 yr and half. Apparently summer school was in session in Dover. I have also not had a traffic violation in over 20 years. Do you think they will allow me to take a... Read more »
Not sure of your question. But if he received Citations for both Speeding and Lack of Financial Responsibility, then he needs to go to Court with proof of current Insurance. A local attorney might help alot in his case, especially since the vehicle has coverage. Apparently your Grandson did not...Read more »
I was issued a citation under the Move over Law. Situation was: I stopped before turning right from a side street into the right hand lane of a state highway (2 lanes in my direction of travel, speed limit 65). About 300 yards from the corner I'd just turned was an emergency vehicle, pulled... Read more »
The officer who pulled me over didn't state on the ticket that it was reckless, but I'm afraid I'll be charged as such. This is my first ticket ever but I'm afraid I'll be subject to jail time. Is hiring an attorney my best bet?
Apparently you handled yourself well when the stop occurred. The Citation can be amended, but I doubt it will be anything worse than the 29 MPH over. That Violation will add 5 points to your MVR, so you must be careful for the next year. An attorney might help, especially as nervous as you...Read more »
The vehicle information on the citation is wrong, he also did not check the proper boxes for commercial vehicle and the license plate number doesn't match the vehicle. I also explained to the officer I was only restarting my phone by pressing the power button since it froze and I use it for... Read more »
I recently received a speeding ticket for going 70 in a 55. I did not know the speed limit, as I had just turned down the street, so I was following traffic. The officer that pulled me over said that it was not his jurisdiction. When he pulled me over, he said that he was pulling me over for... Read more »
