Lawyer: Ray, Lawyer replied 7 months ago

Have you spoken to the prosecutor about any plea offers for deferred adjudication?You complete defensive driving or other terms and they agree to dismiss it once completed

.A lawyer here would try to resolve this.As it is its your word against police and radar gun.Tough to prevail, being honest.You might convince them you were speeding less but hard to prove you weren't speeding at all.

These things usually don't end well for you if the police officer appears and testifies.Thats way over the limit here.Your best options are to try and make a deal here prior to trial and change plea, ask for continuance here(new trial daye) , maybe officer doesn't show.Thats what you should consider as options here to try to get a better outcome.

I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks let me know if you have more.

If you can positive rate 5 stars it is much appreciated.

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.
