My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today. Thank you for your question and for using justanswer.com.
It is very difficult to defend a charge such as this as it is based on the police officer's testimony that you were going both 15 miles over the speed limit and over 80 miles mph. The only way to do this is to somehow find a way for the officer not to show up or show a reason that the officer is lying (very very unlikely). Your charge is a class 3 misdemeanor, and if convicted, the dmv could suspend your license under 20-16 and your insurance rates would increase substantially. The only viable option is to get the charge or speed reduced, based mostly on your clean driving record. This will work best if you retain an attorney and you will probably have to take a defensive driving class approved by the DA's office, either online or in person (cost about $60), and do community service (1 hr./mph over). To answer your question, my best advice to you is for you to hire an attorney who practices in the county where you got stopped. That lawyer would have the best knowledge of the DA's policies regarding getting tickets like yours reduced so that you don't lose your license and minimizing points on your license and insurance.
Please let me know if you have any further questions and please positively rate my answer if satisfied. There should be smiley faces or numbers from 1-5 to choose from. This extra step will cost you nothing extra and will be greatly appreciated.
It will but a good attorney could fix this for you and get it reduced to something that could stay off your record. If you have not taken a defensive driving course yet then this could be a way to keep it off your record as well. A local attorney will be well worth it and will probably be able to work a deal that will keep it off your record but with 4 tickets in the past couple of years that also is not a done deal.
The will not notify your employer. Yes it will help your case as it could get your ticket dismissed and also reduce the points on the record. Again, a local attorney will be very helpful and in conjunction with a defensive driving course can probably keep this off your record but again the court might not like the excessive amount of tickets but you should be eligible to take another class since the last one you took is 5 years ago.
Just checking back in, do you have any further questions?
