Q. I did not yield to an ambulance in Missouri. Can this ticket result in jail time?
A: It just depends on the details of the case, your criminal history, your driving record, whether anyone was injured, whether your vehicle was insured, which court your case is being prosecuted in, etc. If you want to get this traffic ticket reduced to a non-moving, no-point infraction, you will have to have an attorney represent you, and you will end up paying a slightly higher fine plus court costs, but you probably won't have to appear in court.
Q. If a 18 year old female fights a 17 year old what will happen? Will the 18yo be charged even with it being self defense
A: You are both considered adults for court purposes. You would both probably be charged with assault unless there is some clear evidence that it was self-defense.
Q. Coasting down a hill and got to 27 over the limit. Didnt hit brake or gas. What's the worst and best case scenario?
A: At age 17, you are an adult for court purposes. The outcome of your case depends a lot on which court your case is being prosecuted in. Some prosecutors and judges are more lenient than others. You (or your parents) will need to hire an experienced criminal defense/traffic law attorney to represent you if you want to avoid a conviction and points on your driving record, and an increase in your car insurance rates. In some courts, a ticket for 27 miles over the speed limit can be amended to Illegal Parking or Littering, while in other courts, the judge will require you to be on probation.
Q. Can I be issued a speeding ticket in the mail?
A: The Prosecutor has up to 1 year from the date of the incident to file charges against you. So yes, it is possible that you could receive a ticket in the mail later. However, it sounds like the officer just gave you a warning and let you go.
Q. I got a "fix it ticket." What does that mean? Can I get out of it being on my record somehow?
A: Usually that means you can get the problem fixed (repair the broken tail-light, for example) and bring proof to court and show the judge, who might dismiss the ticket or reduce the fine. "Fix-it" tickets are usually for non-moving, no-point violations like "Failure to Register Vehicle" or "Equipment Violation" (broken tail-light) which is not going to show up on your driving record anyway.
Q. Trying to find out the cost of a uniform citation. in violation of code 304.050 in Lincoln county missouri
A: You can call the court clerk in Lincoln County and ask if a court appearance is required or can you just plead guilty and pay the fine. I expect that you will have to appear in court for this type of ticket. If so, the judge will sentence you and determine the amount of the fine. If you plead guilty, points will be added to your driving record and your car insurance rates may increase. The judge might require you to do community service, attend driving school, etc. FYI - For some types of moving violations (DUI, excessive speed, etc.) some judges will require jail time, so you should definitely consult an attorney before going to court and pleading guilty. You can hire a traffic ticket attorney to represent you in court. They can likely get your ticket reduced to a non-moving, no-point infraction. You will have to pay a fine & court costs, and you might also be required to attend driving school and/or do community service. The outcome of your case depends on your age, your driving record, how strict the judge & prosecutor are regarding this type of violation, and the skill & experience of your attorney.
Q. I was pulled over going 40 in a 25 (15 over) but I received a court date instead of just a fine. Why? What am I looknat
A: Courts can require a mandatory court appearance for some tickets. If you want to get the ticket reduced to a non-moving, no-point infraction that won't affect your driving record of car insurance rates, you will have to hire a traffic law attorney to represent you. You will not have to appear in court if you hire an attorney to represent you. Your attorney can give you an estimate of the amount of the fine & court costs you will have to pay.
Q. Can a trespassing second degree charge be dismissed if this is my first offense
A: Yes, it's possible that if you hire an experienced criminal defense attorney to represent you, that attorney could negotiate a plea bargain deal to get your "Trespassing" charge dismissed or reduced to a less serious offense, such as "Littering."
Q. Can a ticket get thrown out due to contradictions with the charge?
A: Any error on the ticket can be corrected at any time. This does not sound like an error. This appears to be a situation in which the police officer wants the Prosecutor to know you were speeding 36-40 miles over but the cop gave you a break by issuing the ticket for only 30 miles over. You can go to court and plead guilty on your own without an attorney, but I don't recommend that option. If you plead guilty, the judge will sentence you and jail time is definitely a possibility for this high a speed. The better option is to hire an experienced traffic law attorney to try and work out a plea bargain deal with the Prosecutor. I highly doubt that the Prosecutor will agree to amend your ticket to a non-moving violation, but there's always a chance. Or you could get probation with a suspended imposition of sentence. Most criminal defense/traffic ticket lawyers offer a free consultation.
