We live in Suffolk County New York. My son is 18 years old

We live in Suffolk County New York. My son is 18 years old and home from college for the summer. He was driving to work mid-morning and got a ticket via radar lazer gun going 90 MPH in a 55 mile an hour zone. He has not has any infractions on his driving record. His court date is set for Monday June 19th. A friend suggested we hire a lawyer. The NY DMV website said 35 mph over the speed limit is 8 points.What legal advice can you offer us? Can my son go to the court before the date and explain his speeding to the prosecutor?Would a lawyer help to reduce the fine and points on his license such that it would be worth it? Or should he just show up in court and talk politely to the judge about his mistake?

My son received a traffic ticket in Mahoning County in the

My son received a traffic ticket in Mahoning County in the mail in 2012 via a traffic camera. the ticket was lost, and when he went to renew his license in PA (state of residence) the moving violation was on his record, so PA suspended his license until he cleared up the Ohio ticket. He has now moved to WI to stay with me, and he cannot get his WI license until he settles with PA, which means settling with Ohio. How do we go about rectifying the situationJA: License regulations vary from place to place, so can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: He received the ticket in OhioJA: Do you need to appear in court?Customer: I have no idea, the ticket was lost many years agoJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Will this cost me?

Last month, I got two tickets in, reckless driving and 26+

Last month, I got two tickets in KY, reckless driving and 26+ miles over the speed limit. I have an IL license. My court date was yesterday and the prosecutor is willing to throw one of them away. In KY, it appears the best route is the reckless driving. Do I have to pay a fine in IL as well since I have an IL license?JA: Because traffic laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I got the ticket in Kentucy but I have an Illinois licenseJA: Do you need to appear in court?Customer: Yes, my attorney went on my behalf yesterday.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: Am I subject to the fine and punishment in IL (since I live in IL)? The punishment for reckless driving in IL is class A misdemeanor. I got the ticket in Kentucky but I'm not sure if it IL law matters.
