Legal Answers
8 Questions Answered

Q. I was doing 40 over on my way to OHare, I live in Wisconsin and they want me to show up in court in 2 weeks.
A: Do not ignore the ticket. If you do you will end up with a warrant for your arrest and probably a suspended license. You need to contact a local lawyer as soon as possible.
Q. can u fight tickets that u received that were not you driving at the time but suspended your dl.
A: That is a complicated issue that sometimes comes up when there has been identity theft. There probably is a way to get those taken off your driving record and clear that suspension from your license but it will not be easy. I would contact an attorney in the Springfield area to help you with this process.
Q. How can I get this to disappear off my record
A: You have a serious case here which can impact your driving privileges. It is also technically a misdemeanor offeense as charged. You need to consult with a lawyer. The goal ultimately would be to try and get it reduced to a petty offense but that will not be easy given the speed.
Q. Do i have to go back to court after paying my 1st speeding ticket today?
A: Normally if you're taking driving safety school you would have to return to court to show proof of completion. You should double check with the clerk's office.
Q. I got 1 speeding ticket and I paid 120.00 for it but I got a failure to reduce speed ticket can I keep my licence.
A: Probably, however, this ticket needs to be handled properly. Normally, license suspension/revocations occur when you receive multiple convictions. If you are eligible to receive "court supervision" and do in fact receive it on this citation that should keep the Secretary of State from suspending your privileges.
Q. Driving on revoked license ticket also going 35 over ticket. Havent been to court yet.Will i be locked up 1st court
A: If you were already released on bond you would normally not be taken into custody unless you somehow violated the conditions of your bond. However, it is possible the prosecutor's office would seek to increase your bond depending on the cause of your revocation and other factors. Typically however, you would be given an opportunity to seek legal counsel.
Q. I got court supervision 3month + $335 fine + another court date. Is the fine mandatory or just if I fail supervision?
A: You should check with your attorney or the clerk's office. However, the fine is usually a condition of the supervision and not waived. Sounds like you will have to pay that unless you were told otherwise by the court.
Q. Got pulled over going 82 in a 55. This is my first ticket ever. What do you think will happen, im a 20 year old girl..
A: Exceeding the posted speed limit by 26 mph or more is considered a misdemeanor offense. It is certainly more serious than your typical traffic ticket and can have serious consequences for your driving privileges. While jail time is technically possible it is extremely, extremely rare unless there are other aggravating factors. Most likely you are looking at some form of driver safety school, perhaps community service and a fine.
