Legal Answers
13 Questions Answered

Q. Can additional charges to a traffic stop that resulted in a charge but successfully defended against be dissmissed?
A: A lawyer would need more information before answering the question specific to your case, however, if multiple charges arise from a traffic stop, you can be convicted of those additional charges even if the ticket that was the reason for the stop is dismissed. In these situations, it's best to hire a lawyer in your county to aggressively defend you against these charges.
Q. Can I get a ticket for expired tags from more than one jurisdiction in the same 24 hour period?
A: Yes. Sometimes, if you've gotten your tags updated quickly after the ticket, one or more jurisdictions may dismiss the ticket on payment of court cost - but they are under no obligation to do so.
Q. How can I get my husband a ID so he can receive chemo if he has warrants for fta on tickets?
A: If he has warrants for failure to pay traffic tickets, it is not the clerks who can waive the requirement that he turn himself in. In order to handle the warrants for you, the best outcome is usually obtained by hiring a lawyer in the county where the warrants are from to help you navigate this situation.
