What is the Second Page that the Officer Gave me with My Ticket?

This second page combines the Supporting Deposition, at the top of the page, with an NYS Criminal Procedure Law 710.30 notice, at the bottom of the page.

What are Traffic Infractions as Opposed to Misdemeanors?

"Traffic Infraction is defined by the New York Vehicle and Traffic Law section 155.  A traffic infraction is not a crime.

A misdemeanor, on the other hand, is a classified as a crime and requires a physical appearance in court for an arraignment. Misdemeanors also...

Plea Bargaining and Fines for Common Reductions

Awesome job

I received a ticket for speeding in Warrensburg, NY for going 20mph above the speed limit - a 4 point and >$200 offense. Mr. Bruffett took the case and had the ticket reduced to a 0 point $150 offense. Great result. I highly recommend his services.

Hire Seth!!

I received a speeding ticket in upstate New York (30 mph above speed limit) - this was a 6 point hike on my insurance + fines up to $385. I hired Seth over the phone (I live out-of-state), paid my fees, and crossed my fingers. Wow. My case was resolved in around a month to 0 points and a fine of $135. 100% of my communication after our initial call was over e-mail.

My job requires me to have a clean driving record. I recently received a ticket in Hancock township and hired Seth. He was able to get the ticket reduced to a non moving violation so no points on my license. Excellent attorney, very responsive and great staff. I highly recommend him.
