Fight your Herkimer county ticket
Do Not Plead Guilty and mail your ticket to the court. Filling out the “statement of explanation”on the ticket will not cause the judge to reduce the charge. Instead, you will be convicted of the original charge and fined according to law. Your explanation can only influence the amount of the fine the judge imposes.
Beyond the immediate financial penalty from a court fine or DMV assessment, your insurance company may increase your premiums or even drop your coverage. There may also be unforeseen consequences, like suspensions.
Unfortunately, New York State tickets do not include much information and the process can be confusing. Don’t be taken by surprise: 7 things Your ticket does not tell you.
