Got a notice of trial - how to dispute?



So i got a speeding ticket in the summer, now i have a trial in a few days. I want to postpone it since i cant have that day off work. How easy/hard is this to do? Any suggestions? The fine is not big only 40$ and no point. Please dont telll me to just pay it, since by paying it i automatically admit guilt and my insurance goes up.

Does any1 know a person/place that does this for a fee? xcoppers or something

The way I did it before: I 'missed' the trial date. Went there as soon as I got the notice to pay fine which showed up a few weeks after the trial as by not showing up in court you are automatically charged even if the police officer doesn't show. Anyway, I had a reason, went to see the JP (Justice of the Peace) and they gave me another date in court with a promise from me to show up. I went for the second court date and won the case.

The justice of the peace will see that the charge was reduced so you dont have much luck unless the cop doesnt show up. Try postpoing it for as long as u can and maybe the cops will end up not showing up and if he does then say that its beyond the statue of limitations. Not sure how long it is tho for traffic violations.

the way i used to do it was, send someone else to the court house on the day of your trial, they tell the prosecutor that you had an important business meeting to attend so you need an adjournment to another day. if the prosecutor is a dick, he will let the judge determine whether you get the adjournment, if he's nice he will set another date for trial.

Oh yea this works to, just don't go and when u get notice of convition contact the court house and tell them u never got ur notice for trial all u got was conviction and then they re open it. Just another delay tactic.

I tried to delay mine but I didn't do it in time, the guy was saying I need to give them 3 business days. Just come with a good reason and do it 3 days before, I think you'll get it.

If it was already reduced don't even bother. They can un reduce it in court.

meet the prosecutor?

I chose to option 4 to meet with the prosecutor last week. Has anyone here done this before?
What a waste of time - had to be there early on a work day and wait for them to call my name. I went into a small room and the prosecutor had a checklist in front of her with all the names and pre-decided bargains.
Before I said anything I was offered a bargain to reduce the charge - I was hoping to explain my situation first ... then negotiate. This is not the case, they simply tell you up front "ok here is the deal, take it or leave it". I chose "no deal", and decided to go to court - without having a chance to explain my situation this came across as one-sided approach.

Looking for feedback and advice.

Sounds like a tactic to push as many convictions through without listening to the bs.
