I received a ticket from a State Trooper and I was given a trial date to appear in court. Will I have an opportunity to meet to plea bargain this case?
It all depends. In general, according to VTL 1806, a driver is supposed to have a mandatory pre-trial conference. However, depending on the stage your case is in, you may have waived the pre-trial conference.
Why did they court not accept my plea of guilty by mail?
It is the court’s right to require a driver to appear in court. Some circumstance for which they may require a driver to appear can include an unusually high speed or criminal charges being levied against a defendant.
What would happen if I ignore my ticket?
A driver who ignores their moving violation will eventually have their privilege to drive submitted to DMV for suspension. It is important that you stay on top of your traffic matter because driving with a suspended license can lead to significant problems including criminal charges.
Do local courts take credit card payments?
Some town courts accept payment by online services and other take credit card payments through a credit card form. Most village courts do not accept credit card payment.About Our Firm
