I recently got a criminal traffic violation for expired tag, no proof of insurance and driving with a suspended license. Since then I have renewed my tag, got car insurance and reinstated my license. But I was told I cannot just pay a fine I have a mandatory court hearing. I am also on felony (unsupervised) probation for which I have served half my time with no problems. What will happend at the traffic hearing? Do I need an attorney? Will I be placed on probation violation, if so should I notify my probation officer? Please help I am very worried.
