Legal Answers
19 Questions Answered
Q. should I fight a failure to yeild ticket when other driver was a minor with permit and mother, he never breaked.
A: If it were me, I would appear if possible. A judge has options for reducing or even dismissing a ticket like this. An amended charge of improper driving (only 3 demerit points) or even dismissal with completion of a driver improvement clinic might be possible depending on the circumstances of the case, your driving record, the judge's typical policy on collision cases, etc. Good luck to you.
Q. On probation had court reporting date on Feb 5 Po text me told me didn't have to be present 13 Feb probation was first
A: Bond will be up to the judge, so nothing is guaranteed. Turning yourself in (and before too much time has passed) may improve the chances of a judge viewing your bond status favorably — especially if this is a first offense or second offense probation violation where jail time is either going to be off the table or minimal. Also, keep in mind that losing contact with probation and the court risks developing a new probation violation condition alleging absconding.
Q. Can I go to jail if I have Rheumatoid arthritis
A: Health conditions can be a factor in sentencing, but are not guaranteed to result in a sentence without incarceration. Gathering supporting documentation which details your diagnosis, hardships, medication(s) required, etc. would be a good idea, as that is something the judge could consider at sentencing. If you have a relative or home healthcare nurse who regularly assists you, they are potential witnesses for presenting testimony at sentencing. Alternatives to traditional jail time include electronic home incarceration or even an entirely suspended jail sentence.
