The citation is for 65mph in a 45ph zone. I was traveling with traffic and was doing approximately 58mph in a 45mph zone so I'm not denying I was speeding. My issue is that I'm a CDL-A holder and anything over 15mph could potentially put me out of business. Do you agree with the Blount... Read more »
If the Clerk sends the conviction to the State DOS, then it will affect your License. Hire a competent attorney to represent you on this Citation. At worst it will be a Conviction, or it might not go on your MVR. Never just plead guilty and send the Court a Check.
The only advice is to hire a competent attorney in or near the County you were stopped in. Reckless Speeding is not a crime, so you obviously were charged with something else. The two citations could take your TNDL as you are only allowed 11 points on your MVR for the last year. You may have to...Read more »
Thank you for your question. Pleading "no contest" or "nolo contendre" has a very similar effect to a guilty plea in that you are not disputing any facts and are accepting punishment for a crime. By entering a plea of no contest, you are saying that you do not contest the facts...Read more »
Not sure of your question. I suspect you are trying to get your TNDL. If so, you will have to get paid in full receipts from whatever Courts you had a problem with. Then do a good job in applying for your License, with all paperwork in hand.
I was changing lanes and didn't realize the car in front of me came to a complete stop. I ended up rear-ending her. Both cars totaled. Neither one of us was injured. I am given the option to pay fine online. Should I plea no contest or guilty? I am also supposed to check waive right to a... Read more »
Either plea means you are guilty of the Rule of the Road Violation. That means negligence per se when you are sued for causing damages to the car you hit. If you have insurance, call them and ask for advice. If you try it, you will lose anyway. It will be alot better if your insurance...Read more »
Try to remember what town you were near or there might be a milemarker on the Citation, which you could use on a TN Map from the Rest Areas to possibly find the County. There may be a number to call on the Citation. You can also hire a competent attorney in TN to run it down and represent you....Read more »
A conviction will add 4 pts to your MVR, and you are allowed 11 in the last year. Go to Court in a respectful manner. You might be offered traffic school or some type of diversion. Bring enough cash to pay it that day.
you will need to call Maury County clerk's office. Your case will likely be reset because the courts are closed to most in-person proceedings until the end of January. The clerk's office will give you the correct court date.
Yes for failure to obey the Financial Responsibility Statutes. He apparently did not have Liability Insurance. He may wish to hire a competent attorney to represent him in Court. The lawyer might mitigate the Damages awarded, or even better. Many times the Insurance Co just notifies the...Read more »
The cop supposedly got me by radar for doing 75 in a 55. I wasn't going anymore than maybe 62-65 I know still speeding but the location he put on my ticket is a 5.2 mile difference than where I was pulled over at and I wasn't anywhere near the area that is listed on my ticket. The cop has... Read more »
I was on the interstate going 90 trying to get to gas station cause I was on Empty. A trooper pulled me over and gave me a ticket with a court date. What should I expect? Will I face and misdemeanours or anything?
General Sessions is not a Court of Record, so amendments to the Citation are just performed in Court if needed. Hire a competent attorney to politely point out the charging instrument discrepancies to the prosecutor, and maybe get it dismissed or diverted.
