My question involves vehicle maintenance laws for the State of: New York
Okay, so there are two pages and the first one has stuff about pleading guilty or not guilty and the second one has a correction form. I'm planning on getting it signed by a mechanic. A few questions...
1. Do I plea guilty or not guilty? or do I not plea anything? The officer told me to plea guilty. It says that it will be dismissed if I get it fixed before 1/2 hour sunset but how can it be dismissed if I'm already convicted? (It says pleading guilty is the same as conviction after trial). It my mind it doesn't seem like a good idea but I'm not sure what will happen if I plead not guilty or don't write anything.
2. Is the time limit just for the correction? I don't have to rush out and make sure it gets to where it needs to go by around sunset do I? Seems like that would be unreasonable.
3. Where am I mailing this to? But it probably says somewhere on the form, I haven't read it thoroughly.
4. What's the best way to become friends with a lawyer? How can my whole family not have someone they know in the legal practice.
Thanks, the first question is the most important!
