Arthur Calderon's answer These are pretty serious charges, that carry some hefty fines and jail time depending on the amounts involved. You should seriously consider contacting a criminal defense attorney to further discuss.
Arthur Calderon's answer Unfortunately, this is something that is fairly common, where the trooper casts a net to pull multiple cars over. What makes it worse is that there is no obligation on their part to actually show you the radar.
Timur Akpinar's answer It could depend on what the parking regulations were, what the weather/visibility conditions were, the operation of your vehicle, and other factors. You could consult with an attorney in Mississippi who could examine the matter in further detail.
Arthur Calderon's answer You may have cause to have it thrown out. I'd be curious to know if the officer cited you for any other reason than the tag, as well as the ultimate outcome once he ran the plates.
Arthur Calderon's answer Were you ever found not guilty or guilty? If not guilty, then you might could get an attorney to expunge them from your record, so that they will not pop up on a background check.
Arthur Calderon's answer It applies no differently than if you were a millionaire. Since you have been charged with a new crime, if it carries the possibility of jail time, then you are entitled to a public defender or appointed counsel if you cannot afford one.
Arthur Calderon's answer Given the facts of your case, it sounds like you have a viable defense to the contempt charges. Your best bet is going to be to contact an attorney to delve into the facts a little more and to develop a plan of action to address the deficiencies before the Court.
Arthur Calderon's answer Even though there has been a lag between the time of the tickets to now, you may be able to have the tickets tossed out due to failure to prosecute in a timely manner. My recommendation would be to contact a local attorney who can gather additional information and discuss the possibility of getting the tickets dismissed.
Ms code 63-7-23(4) Any lamps illuminated when the vehicle is in motion, other than those expressly required or permitted by the provisions of this chapter, shall, if visible from the front, display a white or amber light; if visible from either side, display an amber light; and if visible from the rear, display a red light.
Baskin Lowber Jones' answer There are many reasons that a ticket can be invalidated. The form being incomplete is one of them. Tickets are intended to be Affidavits of what the officer saw. If the affidavit contains incorrect information or is incomplete, it may be thrown out.
Baskin Lowber Jones' answer (2) When operating a bicycle upon a roadway, a bicyclist must exercise due care when passing or overtaking a vehicle that is standing or proceeding in the same direction.
Bicyclists are now considered like another car on the roadway under the new bike legislation in Mississippi. A bicyclist should use common sense when attempting to pass or overtake a car in its same lane.
If you have a bicycle law question a Mississippi attorney may be able to help you with your question.
William Head's answer You may win the traffic case, but are facing a failure to appear for court. Contact a MS lawyer to get that case resolved, and then try to get your license reinstated. This also may require an attorney.
