Expect enhanced criminal charges to be filed. Call an attorney ASAP, see what it will take to clear your license and discover if anything can be done before a warrant is issued. Good luck.

Q: have cdl got citation failure to control speed I already paid ticket and cant take defensive driving can it be fixed
Grant St Julian III
Grant St Julian III answered on Sep 9, 2020

Paying the fine on the ticket finalized the matter and it is on your record permanently. It is virtually impossible to "remove" any conviction; the objective is to avoid anything from ever being reported. Next time, call an attorney BEFORE you pay anything or do anything with the court. Good luck

Grant St Julian III answered on Aug 20, 2020

Did you have insurance on the car when you were stopped? If not, and the officer made a clerical error, then the citation was properly issued. If insurance was in force on the date and time in question, take proof of insurance to the court where the ticket is filed and request dismissal. Calling... Read more »

Q: The police officer put Covid 19 as my name on my speeding ticket. Am I still liable? And why would he do that?
Grant St Julian III
Grant St Julian III answered on May 22, 2020

Assume the officer was preoccupied and made a clerical error. Whether the State will pursue prosecution depends on if enough information was gathered to generate a complaint (an error on the ticket itself is not sufficient to cause dismissal). Calling an attorney may help. Good luck.

You cannot resolve a moving violation through a defensive driving class if you don't have a valid driver's license. Talking with a Judge can't hurt. Talking with an attorney first would be better. Good luck.

The question is whether the car was insured on the date and time the ticket was issued; proof of current insurance will not dismiss a no insurance citation. Get a letter from your insurance company that the cat was insured on the date of the ticket.

Q: I was charged with DWI .The police report says the reason I was stopped was for no seatbelt. I wasn't ticketed .

At arraignment th police report says that I was stopped for no seatbelt .I was charged with DWI he claims the oder of alcohol and glossy eyes. On the way out I stopped at traffic ticket office and there is no seatbelt ticket under my i.d Was that a lawful stop?

Herman Martinez
Herman Martinez answered on Mar 5, 2020

The no seatbelt reason is the probable cause for stopping you. A police officer does not write the ticket for the no seatbelt because a DWI is a more serious crime. Nevertheless, a judge may find that the probable cause was not reasonable. Hopefully, you landed in a friendly Houston Harris County... Read more »
