    Default Fighting Speeding Ticket Over 100mph After Being Paced

    My question involves a reckless driving ticket from the State of: ca

    Police officer pulled me over at 3am on 405 alleging I was going over 100mph. He did not use radar gun, he claims he was pacing me. What are my best options for winning case in court? What are possible outcomes if I lose?

    Also he and his partners threatened to take me to jail and used a great deal of profanity and intimidation.

    Thank you for your time.

    If you don't like the way you were treated, complain to the officer's superior... however, whatever happens there will have no relevance in your case whatsoever.

    Best options for winning: Being innocent. Are you?

    Possible trial outcomes: You could win. You could strike a deal. Or you could lose.

    Normally it would be the stated fine/costs plus additional costs for the hearing. The judge will have leeway, though, and I have seen a defendant warned if he demands a trial that his defense had better be reasonable and not stupid. His defense was; "I know I didn't do it." Judge was not only unimpressed, he was livid that the defendant hadn't heeded his warning. He would up with max fines etc.

    While I know this isn't strictly within the bounds of the forum, I highly recommend ANYONE that is thinking about disputing a traffic ticket to tune into a new show on the former CourtTV network... it concerns itself with real people defending themselves in traffic court.

    It will give you a GREAT idea of what is and is not a good idea in court... and may give you some ideas about how to present yourself and what to present.
