Good evening! I can help you out with your legal question tonight. Yes, FL will report to NJ regarding the citation. It is worth paying a local Tampa attorney to appear and amend it to a parking ticket, so that it doesn't affect you in NJ.
I don't think you would get it dismissed, but would merely pay to amend it to a parking ticket and then pay that parking ticket.
I spoke with several attorney in the Tampa area and guarantee the same: dismissal or adjudication withheld. None have even suggested getting it amended to a parking ticket. That would be great if possible.
If they can get it dismissed, great, but it likely is just getting amended to a parking ticket and you will pay for it.
Either way, it won't go on your record.
If you get an attorney.
What about a ruling of 'adjudication withheld', will that get reported?
No, adjudication withheld only means there wasn't a hearing.
Ok, thanks for your help.
You are very welcome! Good luck and make sure to call them. Please have a good night and give me feedback before you go.
