    Post Criminal Speeding Ticket in Arizona

    My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: Arizona.

    I was recently on a road trip and was pulled over by the police claiming I was going 90 at 65 zone. This is a criminal case in Arizona, I would have to appear in court. However I live in Indiana. Can anyone recommend an affordable lawyer or have any advice.

    Would it be better to appear in court myself? and what should my approach be? I have a clean record, I am afraid the most of how it influence my driving record. Is it going to be on my criminal record and affect me getting a new job in the future?

    Thanks

    I would never go to court on a criminal charge of any sort without an attorney. You can be jailed over this.
    If you're convicted not only will you not have a clean driving record, you won't have a clean criminal record.
    How that affects further jobs is something we can forsee, but it will be out there for employers to see.

    thank you for your response but when officer gave a ticket he asked me, "I have a your speed recorded on my radar, do you accept that you were driving on 90 mph .?"
    I said yes and he asked me to sign on my ticket.

    Now how can attorney help me in this?
    Is there any possibility that after checking my background judge forgive me and convert my case from criminal to civil.?

    An attorney will be familiar with the particular court (judge) you will be appearing. He might be able to get it reduced to a non-criminal violation. He might spot some hole in the evidence against you.

    A judge isn't spontaneously going to do anything, most likely. You're best bet is to have an attorney handle it.

    Did he say "accept" or "admit"? Out of curiosity.

    You do want to hire an AZ lawyer.
