The three main people involved in a Gardiner traffic court case are the police officer, the lawyer and the judge. Sometimes, there is also a prosecuting lawyer. Before the case begins, I will negotiate with the police officer and sometimes the prosecutor to see if there’s a way to:
- Reduce the charges to a lesser offense such as a non-moving violation
- Reduce the charge to one with less points
- Merge the tickets – some officers write lots of ticket when one ticket is really the main violation
- Dismiss improper or unprovable charges
My experience trying numerous cases, handling prior negotiations with the same officers and prosecutors and trying cases before the same judges gives me a negotiating edge. It help me phrase the legal and emotional arguments.You Have a Right to Assert Your Defenses
If the defenses are factual, it helps if you appear. Most defense are legal, so you don’t have to appear. A lawyer can assert the legal defenses. The defenses will differ depending on the actual charge, what the police officer/prosecutor can really prove and the facts of the case.If You’re Found Guilty of all or some of the Moving Charges
- The NY DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles) will be notified, place the charges on your record and forward notice of the convictions to your home state or country – if there is reciprocity
- You’ll have to pay the fine, penalty and court costs
- Your insurance rates will probably increase when the insurance company gets notice of the convictions
- Your license may be suspended or revoked
- Any tickets that you win (through dismissal, a finding of not guilty or a reduction in the charges) will be cleaned from your record. If you advanced court costs, your costs should be returned
A speeding ticket and other traffic violations can put points on your driver’s license. Too many points can lead to an increase in your insurance premiums and the possible suspension of your license.
