It depends on your speed. If it was more than 35 mph over the speed limit the Prosecutors will likely not amend it down and you will face a license suspension hearing where you will either have your license suspended or probated. i would hire an experienced Attorney.

Sure it is legal for him to give you this ticket. I would suggest that you consider hiring a lawyer if you are guilty of this offense. If not guilty you may be able to handle it on your own, but it still can be tricky.
