St Louis Speeding Ticket Attorney: What If My Traffic Ticket Is Really Old?


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.

Once the ticket is in warrant status, you are subject to arrest any time you come into contact with an officer of the law.

But if you hire an experienced St Louis arrest warrant lawyer, then he or she can usually get the warrant lifted off your back. Our firm does this by requesting time in front of the judge who issued the warrant in the first place. Once the warrant is recalled, then you won’t have to worry about being arrested for it!!


However, there will still be the underlying ticket to handle. Because if the original traffic ticket is not taken care of properly, then the ticket will go right back into warrant status!! Our goal in regards to the ticket itself would be to get it reduced down to a non-moving violation. A non-moving violation does not come with any points to your permanent driving record (which in turn will mean that your automobile insurance will not go up).
