- Q. 16 year old got ticket for disobeying stop sign, first violation. Ticket says must appear in court. What should we do?
- A: She is required to appear based on her age. She will need a parent to be present as well. Regardless, simply paying the ticket would result in a conviction, so it is best that she appear anyway. A conviction at such a young age could put her at risk of losing her driving privileges in the future. A traffic attorney is not required but would certainly be an reasonable choice.
- Q. Pulled over in il with no license have a court date got my license after the incident will my punishment be reduced?
- A: The outcome of the case depends on a number of factors including the reason you didn't have a license (never issued, expired, suspended, revoked), your driving record and the county/courthouse where your case will be heard. Of course, the best outcome would be a dismissal. Contact a local attorney to discuss the specifics and your options.
- Q. Am I eligible for court supervision?
- A: I would be beneficial to retain an attorney. Speeding 35 or more over the limit is a Class A misdemeanor. The maximum penalty is 12 months in jail and a $2,500 fine plus court costs. While the maximum penalty is extremely unlikely, you want to do everything necessary to avoid a criminal conviction on your record. You may be eligible for court supervision, but there are no guarantees. The goal is to keep this offense off of your public record and minimize the consequences. The speed limit issue is one that may need to be addressed with the prosecutor in court. Contact an attorney directly to discuss the specifics of your case and your options.
- Q. Does a ticket go by the date receive it or does it go by the day you admit guilt
- A: Date of offense is used. For example, the Secretary of State will use date of offense to determine a license suspension for a driver 21 years of age or older if convicted of 3 moving violations within 12 months.
- Q. I was issued a red light ticket by a police officer. How will this affect my record?
- A: If you are eligible, attending TSS will prevent the ticket from appearing on your public record and effecting your insurance/driving privileges. You may be able to avoid TSS and still keep your record clean by appearing in court and requesting court supervision, although it may cost you more. You may want to seek legal counsel, especially if you have any prior tickets. Do not simply pay the ticket for a conviction.
- Q. I got a 1st offense ticket of driving on a suspended license the charge was dismissed with court supervision 2years ago
- A: Yes, unfortunately, it is still considered a second offense.
- Q. If you get a 1st offense ticket dismissed can you be charged 2years later as a 2nd offense
- A: Yes. Court supervision is still considered a 1st offense under most circumstances, unless the statute refers to 2nd "conviction" instead of 2nd "offense".
- Q. Hey I'm 20 going on 21 in August I jst got a speeding ticket for going 79 on a 45.
- A: Speeding 79 in a 45 is a Class B misdemeanor (34 mph over the posted limit). It sounds like the officer made a mistake giving you the option of requesting court supervision by mail (assuming that is what the pamphlet offers). Chances are, if you mail it in, the Clerk's Office will deny the request and send you court date by mail. The goal is to avoid a criminal conviction, keep this offense off of your record, and minimize the consequences. You are encouraged to find qualified legal representation. Contact a local attorney to discuss the circumstances and your driving record. Your attorney will be able to review the ticket and determine the best course of action.
- Q. I am 19 got a speeding ticket in Illinois , officer suggested court supervision??
- A: Court supervision, if completed successfully, will prevent a conviction from being entered on your public record in Illinois. As a result, it will not effect your insurance rates or driving privileges. You will need to avoid any additional tickets during a set period of time (set by the judge), pay fines, and possibly complete traffic safety school. Specific conditions of court supervision are determined in court. Your age and prior driving record will likely be taken into account. Some tickets have the option to mail-in a request for traffic school/court supervision. You need to carefully read the paperwork your were given to determine your options. If requesting court supervision by mail is not an option, you would need to appear in court (or have an attorney appear in court) to request court supervision.
