I GOT A SPEEDING TICKET. WHAT DO I DO NOW?

  • Itís never advisable to go to court or any other legal proceeding without a lawyer there to represent your interests. For most of us the loss of a driverís license means a loss of income, employment, recreation, and other quality of life considerations. A single speeding ticket in and of itself will not directly cause your license to be suspended or revoked, but its effects could be much worse than you expect.
  • Speeding is a moving violation and most automobile insurance contracts require moving violations to be reported. A moving violation may cause your rates to go up. Not a good thing. A lawyer can help you avoid points or maybe even avoid a conviction.
  • An experienced criminal trial lawyer will subpoena the records of the radar or other equipment used in your case. Often the records are not brought to court, and the case is dismissed. Even if brought to court your lawyer should be aware of the defects in the records that may exist and use these defects to your benefit.
  • If going to court is a problem your lawyer can go for you. With permission of the court he can even try and win your case. Permission is almost always granted.
  • If you decide not to hire a lawyer rethink that decision. If you are still determined to go it alone keep these tactics in mind:
  1. Never pay the ticket. Never say you want to plead guilty with an explanation. The State must prove you guilty. The officer may not appear; he may have lost the ticket book with your ticket in it; on your court day the guy in front of you has a lawyer who beats the ticket on a technicality so you use the same tactic to beat yours.
  2. Donít lie. Plead not guilty and let the police officer tell his story then give your explanation. If you imply that the officer is lying the judge will probably think youíre the liar and punish you for lying. In your explanation tell the judge a little about yourself, your job, your family, and any pertinent history such as military service.
  3. Dress appropriately. You will be amazed at the number of people in your courtroom who dressed for a walk in the park rather than for a day in court.
  4. Consider requesting a postponement. It must be in writing with your citation number and trial date listed on the request. A postponement could complicate things and you could reap a benefit from those complications.
  5. Ask a lawyer in the courtroom if heíll do your case for a $100.00. Have the cash in your hand.
  6. The best advice is to call Dominic J. Fleming at 410-659-7661 for a free consultation.

A Great Lawyer Knows the Judge

2 Your lawyer must know the judge. He must know the judges proclivities about certain offenses and the probable sentence if the State proves their case.

Judges have a wide latitude and much discretion when it comes to sentencing. Judges have different beliefs when it comes to what is the appropriate sentence for a particular crime. One judge may believe a first time offender charged with theft should get a slap on the wrist and no criminal record attached to the person charged. Another might believe such a person should be branded as a thief so any future employer or security investigator will be aware of that persons character.

Your lawyer can use the system to steer your case to the judge who has the greatest sympathy for your type of situation. No lawyer can actually pick the judge who will hear your case, but he can use the system in a way that best protects you.
