If the summons is in his name he needs to go to court, but if you want to give him a good defense you will go with him and you both will have a lawyer if it is a serious ticket. I suggest that you set up one of the free in office consultations that must of us traffic ticket lawyers offer.
Most police cars don't have a license plate scanners in them and the officer needs to manually look everything up.

For court you need to file a discovery demand for the information in regards to your speeding ticket not an opera request. As for the information that you need, that would depend on the defense you intend to use.
The officer is not required to put on the ticket how your speed was measured. Thus that will not dismiss the ticket. If you need to know how your speed was checked you will need to order the discovery for the case which you can get by following court rule 7:7-7. Best advise: Hire a lawyer to...Read more »

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.
