Plead "no contest" to a lesser offense yourself. 9 times out of 10 they will accept. Save yourself from feeding the sharks $.

That's what Beyers said. Then if you get another ticket, your chargerd for both offences. Get a lawyer and have it dropped to improper equipment. It will cost you a little but you don't have to worry about it coming back to haunt you.

Definitely get a lawyer. My son was in court a few weeks ago for a speeding ticket. The lawyer hadn't showed yet when the judge called his name. He plead NoCo and the judge gave him a $50 fine, court cost, loss of license for 90 days and 6 months probation...oh, and 2 points on his license. That seemed kind of harsh for a 19 year old first time offender!! The lawyer (out of Morganton) showed 10 minutes later and asked to present the case before the judge again. All was dropped but court cost!! No points, no fine, etc...the lawyer cost $200 so it was well worth it.

Choices:
1. Pay the fine ahead of time.
2. Get a lawyer and fight it.
3. Wait in line at the DA's office the day of court...come early...ask for improper equipment or prayer for judgement,,,determined by the seriousness of the charge...How fast??
4. Improper equipment carries no insurance or license points.
5. Regardless, you will have to pay court costs at a bare minimum.
6. If you choose to speak to the ADA, and you are not satisfied with the result, you are entitled to a continuance to obtain a lawyer or whatever. You may also ask for court appointed counsel if you qualify by being indigent. Any attorney can get a reduced charge. If you choose to fight it, you will need definite proof of wrongdoing by the officer or a radar expert to present evidence he did comply with guidelines set forth by the state in proper operation of the radar.(tuning fork test, visual opinion of speed and visual and audible tracking history, another tuning fork test, etc.)

H/W,

If you will be so kind, please relay the difference in presentation to the court between the attorney and your son. I believe most here will find the simple terminology used by the attorney in addressing the court to drastically reduce the liability to your son quite impressive.

Your absolutely right. It's a game of words. The Lawyer changed the plea to not guilty and claimed first time offender. I can only assume that the lawyer was familiar with the Judge and his personal "quirks" HA!

Wow you must be new to the small town courthouse pass the loot game.
The "terminology used" probably went kind of like this. I got two Benjamin's outta this dumb little prick. I think that's all he's got right now. So you get one and I'll keep one. He will be back in a couple months anyway and we'll tear his ass up for a thousand then.
No, I'm no newbie to the way things work in a crooked little town. I thought it best to let my son face the judge and the consequences in order for him to learn a life lesson...he's learned it the hard way but it could have been a lot worse. He had to sell his car to pay the lawyer and the court cost...

Having possibly the worst driving record in history, I have learned that you can do as much as a lawyer without the lawyer. It really depends on the offense and how bad your record is. If it is speeding, go and speak to the ADA. He is in his office on Fridays. You can also choose to take the class or do a prayer for judgment. The one judge to avoid is Owlsly (spelling) She is a real hard ass

Taking a prayer for judgement works fine until you are caught for another offense. If you are found guilty for the second offense, then you are charged as guilty for the previous offense as well. Get a lawyer.

^ This is the way to go.

Go see the DA...BEFORE your court date..(it varies from county to county) be VERY nice and courteous, and they ususally drop it as much as they can, right there. You'll still have to pay the CC's.

I have done it COUNTLESS times here in the east. Pitt county, Lenoir, Beaufort, Dare. Yeah..I've been stopped a lot.

It has worked for me over and over.

It really depends on your speed and what county you received the ticket in. What was the speed limit and how fast were you going? They don't do prayer for judgments in our counties for speeding tickets. They will either drop the speed to 9 over or give you an improper equipment. Either way it will not reflect your insurance or DL. But if you get another one within 3 years, the only thing that can happen is your insurance company can pick up both tickets it won't put any points on your DL. You can try the DA but I sugesst you do it soon before your court date in case they won't help it will give you time to talk with an attorney.

If you are guilty, why not just pay the fine?

I am tired of people trying go cover up or get out of the mess they themselves created.

"If you are guilty, why not just pay the fine?"

Because it's a racket for making money for the state.

And I was wondering..the person thart started this thread..you MUST not have a mailbox.

Everytime I ever got a ticket the letters from lawyers cane in droves!

BS. We have laws for a reason. They protect all of us.

""And I was wondering" who do you get to read the letters to you?"

I don't read them. No need to.

I'm a big boy and I can go down to the DA's office and get the tickets reduced MYSELF. DUH.

Imagine..somebody from the educational Mecca of Lenoir, accusing someone else of not being able to read!

ROFLMAO!

This dumbazz is probably a lawyer that's pizzed because he realizes I'm suggesting that the POS aren't needed for traffic violations.

Want some cheese "cuntsular"?

Do it yourself folks. Save yourself 200 to 300 dollars.

You can spend your money way better than a crooked, good ole boy lawyer.

Well "Bubba" you are right except we like to hope that he learned his lesson.

Do you know if David Moose comes to Caldwell County? My bf has been charged with a DUI and desperately needs a good attorney. I know from experience that Moose is a damn good attorney but not sure how far out he travels.
