Hello and thank you for contacting us. This is Dwayne B. and I’m an expert here and looking forward to assisting you today. If at any point any of my answers aren’t clear please don’t hesitate to ask for clarification. Also, I can only answer the questions you specifically ask and based on the facts that you give so please be sure that you ask the questions you want to ask and provide all necessary facts. Please note: This is general information for educational purposes only and is not legal advice. No specific course of action is proposed herein, and no attorney-client relationship or privilege is formed by speaking to an expert on this site. By continuing, you confirm that you understand and agree to these terms.
This is one of those that there was a clear violation of the law and yet a judge may be willing to forgive the ticket and dismiss it due to the facts if you get a lawyer. You would want your sister there to testify but if she is willing to do so then 9 out of 10 judges would dismiss the ticket since you have already been punished due to paying to get the car out of impound.
A lawyer can likely get them to agree to, at the most, a pretrial diversion with a very small fine if not an outright dismissal.
