I’ll negotiate before trial – The three main people involved in Wawarsing Town 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, to reduce the points, to merge multiple offenses into one offense, or to eliminate the charges altogether.
I’ll try the case – If a negotiation can’t be reached, the police officer and the prosecutor have the burden of proving their case beyond a reasonable doubt. The police officer is required to appear. Even in traffic court cases a defendant, through counsel, has the right to question the witness against him, to make sure the officer proves his case through evidence that he directly knows.
Through my experience trying numerous cases, I know the factual and legal arguments to make that can help persuade the police officer and the prosecutor. I also know, because of prior work with many of the officers and prosecutors, where they are likely to bargain and where they’re not. It helps to know which arguments, which weaknesses in the government’s case and which defenses the local judge is going to sway his decision.
If you’re found guilty of any charges, those charges may be forward to the state or country that issued your license:
You may have to pay a fine, penalty or court costs – If the charges have been reduced, you will have to pay much less. That’s one of my aims (other than having the charge dismissed) – to reduce the consequences
Your insurance rates may increase – especially if moving violations are involved
Your license may be suspended or revoked
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.
