My question involves traffic court in the State of: California
I have a trial de novo scheduled for Sunday, November 25, at 1:30pm, and i've never gone to court or done anything like this before whatsoever....so i have a few inquiries.
My question is what do i do there? what happens? what are the procedures, etc.?
I'm not going to try to fight it since i've already lost my TBWD, but I would like to request a fine reduction and traffic school. When would i ask for this? what would the judge say that will let me know it's my turn to speak/ask for that?
my ticket was for no headlights on during hours of darkness
oh yeah and one more thing...the judge that found me guilty for my TBWD is the same judge that will be hearing my trial de novo...can i get a different judge? or ask for a different courthouse? anything to avoid him?
thanks a million everyone!
