I need help in writing a plead guilty letter to judge. Could you please review my letter below and have some recommendation?
Dear Sir or Madam:
During my traveling in Montana on June 17, 2010, I have got 2 citations one for speeding (510 A158340 E) and the other for driving
with expired driver license (510 A158341 E). Since I am from out of state. It is very difficult for me to appear in Gallatin County Justice court on June 29, 2010.
In this trip, I did not plan to drive at all but unfortunately, we had to wait 7 hours for our bags at Boise International airport, therefore we had to drive 7 hours overnight to Big sky, MT to catch the trip plan. After long driving overnight, my friend got very tried so I decided to switch to drive to let him sleep for about an hour. After driving for 15 minutes in 55 mph speed limited, I decided to pass a slower car in front of our car; in a result I drove 65mph. When I passed that car, I just saw the first construction sign. I realized immediately that I needed to slow down to 35 mph in construction zone. By the time, I decided to slow down; I got pull over before I could slow down to 35 mph.
Since I have driven in US for more than 8 years, I got only two speeding citations (only 11 mph over speed limit for both) not include these two citations. My last citation was in 2004. I think I am a very good driver. I completely do not intend to have any traffic violation. In this case, I do understand that I have done wrong and I will not drive again until I get my new driver license. I do not ask you to lower the fine or dismiss the case. I was wondering that if it possible for me to plead guilty for driving with expired driver license by mail since I am from out of state.
I, , hereby plead guilty for both violations and attach the appearance bonds ($105 check and $235 check) in leiu of court appearance with this letter including copies of the citations.
Thank you for your attention.
