How to reduce my son's ticket?
Question Details: My son was given a ticket for texting which was double points because of an accident in a snowstorm last year. The ADA will not do anything for him and reduce ticket so he has lost his license. He is a good kid who has never been in trouble. He is going to college on a baseball scholarship and needs his license to attend many events. We cannot afford a lawyer and the DA is not willing to budge.
If you son was texting, then if the DA will not agree to a more favorable plea or deal, there is nothing you can do. There is no right to more lenient treatment; it is up to the prosecutor. If the prosecutor refuses to budge, you can't force him to let your son plea to a lesser or different offense; the prosecutor may proceed against your son on the offense he committed.
