Being charged with a traffic violation in Dayton can lead to a range of penalties – from paying a fine for a minor traffic citation to being thrown in jail for a long time. Many traffic violations can result in points on your driving record or the loss of your driving license. While you might think that simple citations can be disposed of with just paying the fine, this can be a mistake. It is in your interest when facing traffic charges to hire an experienced traffic violation defense lawyer in Dayton to help you fight the accusations against you.
If you have been charged with a serious traffic violation, if you have an accumulation of traffic violations over time, if you are a commercial driver facing a potential suspension of your commercial driver’s license, or if you are facing a substantial fine or an increase of your insurance premiums due to traffic violations, then it is in your best interest to hire the services of an experienced traffic violation lawyer in Dayton to help you.
There are many things a lawyer can do, starting with discussing your case with the prosecutor with the goal of having the charges against you reduced or dismissed altogether. At The VanNoy Firm, we have been handling traffic cases in Dayton for many years and know what works and what doesn’t work.
If our best efforts to obtain a desirable outcome through negotiations do not lead to what we think is best for our client, then we will advise the client for the case to proceed to trial before a judge.
If a case goes to trial, the government prosecutor has what is known as the “burden of proof” – meaning that the prosecutor must prove to a judge or jury that you have committed each element of the charged traffic offense beyond a reasonable doubt. This is a high standard of proof to satisfy in any case, and with the services of an experienced lawyer, the government may not be able to meet this standard.
For example, if the lawyer makes a strong case to create doubt about any of the elements of the charged offense, the charges against you may be dismissed altogether.
Under Section 4510.036 of the Ohio Revised Code, the state has created a driving point system in which a driver is assessed points for certain traffic violations. The number of points assessed on the driving record depends on the nature and severity of the offense.
If a driver accumulates too many points in the system within a specified time, they may have their driver’s license temporarily or permanently suspended. At the top of various traffic violation offenses that could result in points on a driving record include the following:
