How exactly each municipality and/or county handles the citation, however, is another story. So the outcome of your trespassing ticket will depend heavily on where the ticket was issued.

No, it does not have to ruin your life at all!! A good St Louis stealing or theft attorney can help you deal with the charge so that it does minimal damage. But the last thing you want to do is plead guilty! If you plead guilty, then there isn’t a whole you can do about it later on. Below is a brief description about what we can do to help you out:

If you have been accused of stealing something with a value of $500 or less, then the state of Missouri can charge you with a Class A Misdemeanor. This type of charge comes with up to one (1) full year of jail time, and a $1,000 fine. And of course pleading guilty will also mean that the charge will become a part of your permanent record. So anytime you fill out a job application, or try to rent an apartment, or take out a student loan, then it will very likely be brought up (because the potential employer, or landlord, or government agency will almost assuredly run a criminal background check on you).

ONLY $35 FOR MOST ST LOUIS TRAFFIC TICKETS

There are a couple of instances in which a St Louis speeding ticket will go to warrant: 1) when you fail to appear at one of the hearings set by the court; 2) if you fail to pay your fine within the timeframe allotted by the court. A fuller description of this process is given below:

When a St Louis traffic ticket is issue by a police officer, this ticket will provide you with information as to the court date, time, and location (usually about thirty (30) days after the ticket is issued). If you do not make it to the court date (or you forget about it, or you lose the ticket, or you say the hell with it), then the judge will automatically issue a warrant for your arrest from the bench (the so-called “bench warrant”).

Once the ticket is in warrant, then the only way to get out of it is to bond out (or hire an attorney to help get you out from underneath it). But the ticket will still need to be dealt with (which is exactly why it is such a good idea to retain the services of a good St Louis speeding ticket lawyer). If you bond out, that means you pay a certain sum of money to the court to get yourself out of jail.

There is almost always a fine that the municipality assesses after the ticket is reduced to a non-moving violation. This fine is normally in the $100 – $200 range. And the muni will give you plenty of time to pay it (anywhere from one to two months, and sometimes more; and often times, the muni will allow you to do a payment plan over the course of several months). A more thorough explanation is given below:

When a traffic ticket is issued, the best course of action to handle it is by getting in touch with a good St Louis speeding ticket lawyer. For instance, our firm would seek to have the ticket reduced from a moving violation (like a speeding ticket) down to a non-moving violation like illegal parking). A non-moving violation does not come with any points to your permanent driving record.

ONLY $150 TO HANDLE MOST ST LOUIS ARREST WARRANTS

If your St Louis traffic tickets are quite old, then there is a good likelihood that the ticket has gone to warrant status. If that is the case, then the police can take you into custody once they run your name through their database. But there is a way to handle warrants (and the old tickets associated with them). A description of how is provided below:

When a police officer writes out a ticket for a traffic infraction, the copy that you receive will provide you with all the information you need to know about the charge. One of the pieces of information provided is the court date and time on which the matter will be heard. But if you do not attend this designated hearing (or if you do not hire an attorney to attend the hearing for you), then the judge will issue a warrant for your arrest from the bench.

Well, yes. If I am giving an honest answer, it is much easier to simply plead guilty to whatever crime you have been charged with. Because if you plead guilty, then you won’t have to deal with the prosecutor, you won’t have to learn what you rights are, and you won’t even have to speak much to the judge (other than to say that you are pleading guilty).

But although choosing this route may be the quicker, easier path, it is also the most damaging and disastrous for your future (in the short and long term). It will wreak havoc on your ability to land a good job, to rent a decent apartment, to secure a student loan, and it will even destroy your chances of receiving certain lines of credit.

It will stay on your permanent record forever (hence the word “permanent”). It will stick with you like luggage, always pulling you down. And it will cause people to look at you differently (every time the subject of your criminal record is brought up).

Then a Probation Revocation hearing will be set in front of the judge. This hearing will give you a chance to convince the court that your probation should be continued into the future (so that the underlying sentence that could be assessed stays suspended). A further description is described below:

If you are charged with a crime in St Louis, then you have a couple of options. You can hire an attorney, you can take your case to trail, or you can work out some sort of deal with the local prosecutor. If you choose to work out a deal, this is called a plea bargain. A plea bargain is basically an agreement you make with the court to plead guilty, but with certain terms attached to it.

This is an interesting question to answer, because most of the time, what the person is really asking is whether or not you have to answer any of the officer’s questions at all. And the answer to that question is: NO!!!! However, it is surprising how many people will in fact go ahead and answer the cop’s questions (no matter how damaging the information might be).

First of all, just because a police officer asks you questions, you are under no obligations to answer. At all. You have a Constitutional right to remain silent in the face of questions from an authority figure (so as to avoid self-incrimination). The cop will most certainly press you for information, and say things like, “It would be better for you if you answer my questions,” or “Nothing bad will happen if you just give me the info I need,” or “It’s in your best interest if you cooperate with me and answer my questions now.”

Depending upon where you received your St Louis traffic ticket, the courthouse for your particular hearing could resemble a madhouse!!

So what happens at a traffic docket? You sit until your name is called, you stand before the judge, he/she asks what you would like to do with your ticket, then you indicate what you would like to do (either plead guilty or not guilty).
