I'm 16. Recently I was pulled over for going 73 in a 30 because I was late for work. It was in a school zone but on a Saturday and there was nothing going on at the school. It's my first offense. The police officer could have taken me to jail but didn't. He wrote on my ticket that I was on a cell phone, but I wasn't. I'm going to of course plead guilty at my court date but how am I supposed to defend myself against the cell phone charges? Being on a cell phone adds $100 to the fine which I think will be about $300 without the cell phone charges. The judge probably won't believe me against an officer but I really wasn't on my cell phone. How would he even be able to see that if I'm speeding by at 73 mph anyway. Also, what exactly will happen besides getting a fine? Like, how many points will be on my license, or will I have to do community service? If I get a nice judge is there any charge he could bump it down to? About how much could my fine be? This is obviously my first time going to court, and I'm really nervous.
