I'm 17 and turn 18 in a month. I want to ask and see if anyone can help me out with my situation. I have 1 speeding ticket under my belt already and a few other tickets for sliding off a curb and leaving my car on the side of the road. Long story short I'm not a perfect law abider with the steering wheel in my hands.
However I am a very smart driver and got both perfect scores on my written and driving test to prove it.
Last Sunday I got caught in a speed trap. It was on a Sunday night on an unmarked county road that quickly went to a 35 zone due to a sharp curve. I got pulled over right after this an got clocked at 51mph.
I was extremely polite and the officer told me he would cut me a break.
By this he meant he would write me a ticket and put 50mph on it...
If this citation goes through I no longer have a license due to points doubling after my first and second offence. I called up the officer and made up a sob story and went in and told him everything hoping he would let me off. He talked to the clerk of courts and told her my story. They told me they would send me a letter in the future explaining to talk to someone at the court house.
How else can I go about getting out of this. Can I bargain and say I will pay the ticket? I cant have the points on my record.
Wisconsin must also be different from other states because the officer is never present in the courtroom. Can't I just plead not guilty because there is no one there to contest?
