Ask for Traffic School; or, go to your trial and plead Not Guilty. However, your admitted speed makes you guilty, just not at the speed the officer wrote. That might make you eligible for a lesser fine, but you would have to consult with a Traffic Ticket attorney for specifics on that.
A later date because the prosecutors did not have my criminal file with them and could not find it in their office does my guilty plea still stay or does it mean I have a chance to plead not guilty at the next arraignment?
He is working for a trucking company in the US with no work permit he currently has a tourist visa and recently got a ticket. His court is coming up and we are unsure of what to do. Or how to go about it.

Yes! In most cases you would be required to book if you are convicted. Make sure to appear in court or have a private criminal defense attorney appear on your behalf. If you have or can get a valid license you may be able to gain a dismissal or reduction of the charge to an infraction.

A friend is take over payments on a vehicle I no longer need and he was pulled over for speeding after making a turn from a stop light and I as the vehicle owner as well as the friend got a ticket for the same thing even though I was not present.
If at a traffic light there are two cars on opposite sides of the street both making left turns and a car from behind one of the turning cars decided to go around and then hits the turning car from the opposite side of the road who would be at fault for the accident.
The car from behind would have most, if not all of the fault, assuming everyone agreed on the facts as described. The car turning left from the opposite side may also have some fault as it could have had a clear view of the oncoming vehicle and might have been able to yield to avoid the collision.
