I’m new to Los Angeles and I got a traffic ticket how do I get less charge at court?
get there early , talk to the prosecutor , tell him you only have 450 and can you cop a plea for a lesser charge ? that's about the best you can get . the new in the state bit won't fly .
If you don't care about the ticket being a point on your insurance, go to court and ask if you can do community service instead of pay the fine. This is legal in most parts of California. If you don't want the point on your ticket, you are required to pay: - the ticket - a court fee to attend traffic school - traffic school. You probably need to do this today. Once you have attended traffic court, it is usually too late to attend traffic school.
Pay the fine or go to jail, your choice.
Hire a lawyer. Of course, that would cost you more than the ticket but you might win.
no matter what you tell him. The stop sign rule is the same everywhere The wheels have to stop turning when at a stop sign pay the judge as he has heard all of the crap before
Plead not guilty and set a trial. Then arrange to speak to a prosecutor. The judge has no authority t change the complaint.
