Q. I received a ticket for a 72 in a 55 mph in Franklin County, MO but the officer never asked me to sign my ticket?
A: No, this is not sufficient to get the ticket dismissed. It does not matter that you didn't sign the ticket. You can hire a traffic law attorney to get your ticket amended to a non-moving, no-point violation so nothing will show up on your driving record and your car insurance rates won't increase.
Q. Got speeding ticket in October of 2018 , It wasn’t filed into the system til April 2019. Can it get dismissed?
A: You can hire a traffic ticket lawyer to get your speeding ticket amended to a non-moving, no-point violation such as "Illegal Parking." The statute of limitations on traffic tickets and other misdemeanors is 1 year from the date of the incident, so just because your ticket didn't get filed until 6 months later is not sufficient grounds for dismissal.
Q. About how long does the state have to complete the entire court process legally?
A: The Prosecutor has up to 1 year from the date of the incident to file charges, if it's a misdemeanor such as marijuana possession. It can take several months to receive the lab test results confirming the identification of the illegal substance.
Q. The cop told me I was doing 45 in a 35 but he wrote 35 in a 45 on my ticket. Can this be voided in court?
A: Errors on tickets can be corrected at any time by the police officer or the prosecutor, so it is very unlikely that this error is sufficient to get your ticket dismissed. You can hire a traffic ticket lawyer to get your ticket amended to a non-moving, no-point infraction such as "Illegal Parking." You won't have to appear in court, and the Prosecutor will give you at least 30 days to pay the fine and court costs. Your attorney can give you an estimate of the amount of the fine and court costs. Fines and court costs vary depending on which court your case is being prosecuted in and how bad your driving record is. Or you can plead not guilty and ask for a trial. You can hire an attorney to represent you at trial, but there is a very probability that you will lose and end up with a conviction, points on your driving record, and an increase in your car insurance rates.
Q. Last year around this time I got a speeding ticket for doing 13 over on the I-44, I paid the fine and got 3 point....
A: When you go to court, the judge will ask if you are pleading guilty or not guilty. If you plead guilty, the judge will sentence you and assess the fine & court costs. 3 points will be added to your driving record and your car insurance rates may increase as a result. Or you can plead not guilty and the judge will set your case for a trial. Or you can hire a traffic law attorney to get your ticket reduced to a non-moving, no-point infraction such as Illegal Parking or Littering. The outcome of your case depends on which court your case is being prosecuted in, how bad your driving record is, and exactly how fast you were driving. If you also received a ticket for evading police, that's a separate 2-point moving violation. Your attorney may be able to get that ticket reduced to a no-point violation, as well.
Q. I recieved tickets for window tint and expired insurance card. Could I have these dismissed due to a clerical error?
A: Errors on tickets can be corrected by the police officer or prosecutor at any time. So just the incorrect identification of the vehicle on the tickets is not enough to get the tickets dismissed.
Q. I received a C&I ticket with no fine amount. Does anyone know the fine? It has been almost 3 weeks and it’s not filed.
A: For a Careless & Imprudent Driving ticket, it's usually a mandatory court appearance. That's why there is no fine amount listed on the ticket. If you want to plead guilty as charged, you have to go to court on your court date and the judge will determine the amount of the fine. In some courts like St. Louis County Circuit Court and St. Charles County Circuit Court, it can take 2 to 4 months for the ticket to get filed and a court date to be set. FYI - If you plead guilty to C&I, points will be added to your driving record, and your insurance company may increase the price of your car insurance because of the C&I conviction. You can hire an attorney to appear in court for you and get your C&I ticket reduced to a non-moving, no-point violation. You will have to pay a fine and court costs (and you might also be required to attend driving school), but you will most likely not be required to appear in court. The fine is usually a little higher than the original fine when you get a ticket amended to a non-moving, no-point violation. An experienced traffic law attorney can give you an estimate of the fine and court costs that you will have to pay, along with a flat fee price quote for how much they will charge to represent you.
Q. I was going 20mph the limit. In St Louis. What does that usually cost? Best and worse case scenario?
A: The cost of the fine depends on which court it's in and how bad your driving record is. If you want to plead guilty and pay the fine, you have to go to court and plead guilty to the judge, who will assess the amount of the fine, and points will be added to your driving record (and your car insurance rates may increase). Or you can hire an attorney to get y our speeding ticket amended to a non-moving, no-point violation. You will pay a slightly higher fine plus court costs, but you won't have to appear in court. Again, the amount of the fine & court costs (and the amount the attorney charges) vary depending on which court your case is being prosecuted in.
Q. can the prosecutor nolle prosequi a case with no reason and reissue when they want
A: Yes, the Prosecutor can nolle (dismiss) a case and re-file new charges later and they don't have to explain why they nolle'd it.
