Hello,

Unless the ticket misstates the facts or doesn't cite the law correctly, then you will have very little chance of getting a not guilty finding since it is unlawful to do what you did. In addition, if you fight it and lose you will also have to pay court costs. Having said that, it is your right to make the State prove their case, so you could go in and say you didn't do it and they would have to produce evidence that you did.

what about going in to try to drop the points
Lawyer: Marsha411JD, Attorney replied 8 years ago
DMV regulations govern whether or not you get points for particular convictions. So, you will not be able to avoid the points unless you get a not guilty finding. That might be enough incentive to try to fight the ticket.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
