Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hello and thank you for contacting Just Answer. I am an expert here and I look forward to assisting you today. If at any point any of my answers aren’t clear please don’t hesitate to ask for clarification.
1. Will this go on my record, or is this just a $125 ticket?
Both. If you pay it then it is an admission of guilt and goes on your record. All tickets are on your record.
2. Is it possible to remove/expunge this from my record, perhaps if procedure wasn't correctly followed?
You can't get it expunged if you plead guilty however, you can try and get it quashed or dismissed but you will need to get a lawyer to look it over and help you with it.
3. How public is this information? Will a future employer be able to find out about this violation?
It is public record and there is at least a chance the employer can find out, it depends on how thorough their background checks are.
If you hire a lawyer they may be able to get the judge to do a pretrial diversion or some other method where it doesn't count as a conviction.
That depends on the judge, the lawyer, etc.
Ok, thank you for this information
You're very welcome. There's a good chance you can avoid the conviction since there is a conflict in laws and it's a pretty minor offense.
