I can't tell you what is going to happen to you. I can only tell you what the possible penalties are. The decision is ultimately up to the presiding judge as to what happens.

So please provide me with the specific offense code and name of the offense.

Thank you for your patience. Your answer is below. When you get your answers, you will be asked to give a rating - 4 or 5 stars are appreciated. This is important because this is how I credit for doing my job. Don't worry, you can still ask related follow-up questions even after you've given a rating. Thank you!

ANSWER: OK, don't worry too much about this. This is a Class 3 misdemeanor, which is the lowest category of criminal offense.

The penalty is a maximum of 30 days in jail, 1 year of probation and a $500 fine plus surcharges. If this is your first offense, it's possible that you'll end up only having to pay a fine and on probation of some sort.

I would definitely get you a traffic lawyer to help you with this case, in order to ensure the best chance of getting the lowest possible penalty allowed under law: the fine.

I hope that answers your questions. Please remember to give me credit for doing my job by clicking on 4 or 5 stars at the top of your screen.

A BONUS is also appreciated if you feel I've earned one today. And remember, you can still ask follow-up questions if you need to.

If you want to talk on the phone, I am available to do that for an additional fee.

And if you have new questions in the future, you should write FOR JAMES in the question. That way, I become your personal Professional.

Thank you!

FOR JAMES
So I contacted a traffic lawyer like you said. Is $1,500 The average normal fee for lawyer to represent criminal traffic ticket?

Unfortunately, I would not know that information. Lawyers charge different rates across the country, depending on the market and the specific situation. You should call around to different attorneys to see what they charge.
