Frequently Asked Questions

What happens during a court trial for unauthorized speed contests?

During a court trial, the prosecution will present their case first. They may introduce evidence such as eyewitness testimonies, video footage, or police reports. Then, your defense team will present your case, which may involve challenging the prosecution’s evidence, presenting evidence of your own, or calling witnesses to testify.

Do I have to testify in my defense?

No, you have the right to remain silent, and choosing not to testify cannot be held against you. However, in some cases, your testimony might benefit your defense. Your lawyer will advise you on the best course of action based on your circumstances.

What’s the difference between a plea deal and a trial?

A plea deal is an agreement you make with the prosecution to plead guilty to a lesser charge or for a lesser sentence. This can result in a quicker resolution and potentially less severe penalties. Conversely, a trial is a formal court process where the prosecution and defense present their cases, and a judge or jury decides the outcome.

Can I appeal if I’m found guilty?

If you’re found guilty, you may have the right to appeal the conviction or sentence. An appeal is a request to a higher court to review and possibly change a lower court’s decision. It’s important to note that an appeal is not a new trial and must be based on a claim that an error occurred in the original trial.

What is the role of a defense attorney in a case involving unauthorized speed contests?

In a case involving unauthorized speed contests, a defense attorney’s role is to represent you and protect your rights. They will challenge the prosecution’s evidence, present it in your favor, and argue. They can also negotiate plea deals with the prosecution and guide you through every step of the legal process.

How soon after my arrest should I contact a lawyer?

You should contact a lawyer as soon as possible after your arrest. The sooner you have legal representation, the better your chances of building a solid defense. Your lawyer can gather evidence, interview witnesses, and work on your case immediately.

Can past convictions affect my case?

Yes, past convictions can affect your case, particularly for similar offenses. They may influence the prosecution’s approach, the judge’s perceptions, and the severity of the penalties if you’re found guilty. However, a skilled defense attorney can work to minimize the impact of past convictions on your case.
