MUNICIPAL COURT MATTERS
first experience with the legal system may well be a traffic
ticket. We know how nerve-racking a summons can be. We also
know how important it is to obtain sound legal advice and
not appear in municipal court unrepresented.
Once in court
you will be up against not only the police officer or trooper
who issued the summons; you will face an experienced prosecutor.
Pleading guilty is an option, but it is usually not an appropriate
or prudent choice.
A guilty plea to a traffic violation may
result in a hefty fine or suspension of your license, or both,
as well as points on your license. The penalties for a guilty
plea to driving while under the influence of alcohol (i.e.,”
drunk driving,” “DWI” or “DUI”)
are even more severe, and can result in heavy fines, suspension
or revocation of your license, points and a hefty surcharge
on your insurance premium.
