You can plead 'not guilty' and either go to trial yourself, or hire an attorney to represent you at the trial. The likelihood of success depends on which borough of NYC it occurred in.

Feel free to reach out to us directly with any other questions.

If you want to fight this ticket, try re-posting this question in the state of Nevada. Most NY lawyers will not be able to advise you of Nevada law.

If you have a regular NY license, the points won't be added to your NY license if you are convicted of this ticket. If you ignore this ticket, NY may suspend you.

They need to release him within a week without bail if they don't do a probable cause hearing. The story sounds a bit extreme for a couple of non violent misdemeanors. Which Court are these charges filed in?

Unfortunately not. Moving violations are issued to the driver, not the vehicle. If they have your name and DOB or address, or client ID number accurately that is sufficient.

Feel free to email us directly with any questions or for a free consultation.

In New York the Courts don't arrest for traffic tickets which are aren't misdemeanors. They only suspend the driver's license. If you had a ticket for driving suspended, you could be be arrested for a short time.

The tickets are in your name, so you need to appear in court (probably better off with a lawyer) to argue that it wasn't you. You should be able to provide an alibi for the date and time in question?

You can handle the matter yourself. However, you are facing 3 points if found guilty. If you have an attorney appear on your behalf you do not need to go to court. An experienced traffic attorney might be able to reduce the ticket to a non-moving, no points violation. An attorney might even be able to get the ticket dismissed on a technicality.

You probably shouldn't have gone back to the station. If you were served with papers when you went back to the police station, then you know what you were charged with and when to go to court.

As for throwing the pipe into the woods, that was probably an error on the police officer's part. However, it's hard to see how much that will help you for the marijuana possession charge.

Q: If my friend runs a red light but is driving my truck, is it possible for them to suspend my license?

Eli Moore's answer
If you are referring to a red light camera ticket, (that one receives by mail) then you are liable for the ticket as the registered owner of the vehicle. If the ticket remains unpaid you could face license or registration suspension.

If the driver of the truck was stopped running a red light and given a ticket on the scene, then he is solely responsible.

You are lucky, because it records as a 0 point violation on your driving record. If you fight it, they can change it to the correct 5 point charge in court.
