St Louis Speeding Ticket $35: What Happens If I Have Already Plead Guilty To Tickets In The Past?


When you plead guilty to a St Louis traffic ticket, the state of Missouri will automatically assess points to your permanent driving record. This is bad because “points” are like little red flags that make it appear as if you are not a good driver. It is the existence of points on your record that will result in your car insurance exploding.

Instead of pleading guilty to the ticket, we would rather get the citation reduced from a moving violation (like “excessive speeding”) down to a non-moving violation (like “illegal parking”). The reason why we make this our goal is because a non-moving violation does not come with any points (and if you don’t have to worry about the points, then you don’t have to worry about rising auto insurance premiums)!!

But that doesn’t help if you have already pled guilty to the ticket. So what are your options in this kind of situation? One possible solution would be to file a Motion to Withdraw Guilty Plea with the court in which your ticket originated. If the judge is willing, he/she might grant this motion, and allow you to “take back” your original plea.


But the real questions as to whether or not this option is available would be the timing: if your guilty plea was eighteen months ago, the judge is probably not going to grant such a motion; but if your plea was less than thirty days ago, then there is a much better chance of the motion being granted!!
