For more information regarding your legal matter, this guide was created by our attorneys to help you gain a getter understanding of the legal arena.Entering a Plea
One of the most important things you have to do is enter your plea. You have an option to either enter a plea of guilty or not guilty.
Entering a Not Guilty Plea: If you would like to enter a not guilty plea, please follow the directions provided on your ticket. Once the court receives your plea, you will be sent a court notice which will tell you when to go to court. At your court appearance you will have the opportunity to present your case’s strengths.
Entering a Guilty Plea: If you would like to enter a guilty plea, please follow the instructions on your ticket. Pleading guilty may lead to high fines, fees, points and insurance increases.
Important: If you fail to answer your ticket or pay your fine notice, it may result in a suspension of your license. Please keep in mind that it is a crime to drive with a suspended license. If you are pulled over, the officer can arrest you and impound your car.Fine and Points
Tickets often carry a potential to cost hundreds in fines, penalties, hassle, and insurance increases. Currently, a guilty plea to a 86/55 mph could cost driver close to $700.00 in fines, an additional $450.00 in penalties, and insurance increases. Given the right additional set of facts and circumstances, there is potential to receive the more serious penalties of a suspended license and being sent to jail.
