Actually it is very common to get tickets after the fact. For most tickets the police have up to 30 days to send you one and a few tickets like DWI and leaving the scene of an accident have even a longer time line. I suggest hiring a good lawyer.

I had permission to borrow a car about two months ago. The person gave me the key and I brought the car back right away when I was done. Now they are made at me for other reasons and are threatening to press charges on me for the time I borrowed the car out of spite. Can they?
It would be hard for them to prove the case this far out. If they went to the police while the car was gone then they would have a good case. But anyone can file charges the question is can they win. If charged get a good lawyer.

Without being pulled over, and states an officer attempt to pull me over (but never did) but failed in pursuit of another speeding driver. Officer also used Pace to track my speed. Can this be dropped?
In New Jersey an officer does not need to pull you over to give a ticket. Pace is also considered a reliable way to track speed. That being said a good lawyer should be able to help you reduce the points for the tickets that you're facing. I suggest that you set up one of the free in office...Read more »
