Class C Tickets
My office is located in down town Plano, just blocks from the City of Plano Municipal Court and I am available to handle your City of Plano class C ticket. I will also handle your municipal ticket from Allen or Frisco. I handle all types of Plano (Allen or Frisco) tickets including: assault by threat, assault by contact, theft $100 - $750, public intoxication, driving with an invalid license, drug paraphernalia or disorderly conduct. You do not want to go through life with one of these charges on your record, which can happen if you do not get an attorney’s help in handling your ticket right away.
You should not plead guilty without having an a Plano criminal lawyer review the facts surrounding your ticket, obtain evidence, and review all of your options with you which may include negotiating a plea or setting the case for a Motion to Suppress or a Jury Trial. Once hired I will enter a letter of representation on your behalf, set the case on an attorney docket, monitor all issues that arise in your case and determine the best course of action for your City of Plano Class C ticket.
It is imperative that your case is handled correctly so that you remain eligible to have your case expunged from your record as soon as possible. A class C ticket will stay on your criminal record forever unless properly expunged. Steep fines and punitive classes or community service can be involved with a Class C misdemeanor. It is very important that you have your case evaluated by a Plano attorney before you enter any plea on your ticket, miss any court appearance or speak to the Judge or City Attorney.
You have 10 days from the date of your ticket or arrest to appear in front of the City of Plano Municipal Court Judge to determine how you want to handle your case. Even if you are arrested and bond out, you still have to report back to the Judge within 10 days. If you do not want to plead guilty to your class C ticket in Plano, you will be scheduled to see the City of Plano attorney assigned to your case. It is never a good idea to meet with the Plano city attorney by yourself, you can do damage to your case without even realizing what you have done.
The City of Plano Municipal Court system is made up of Judges and city attorneys that are employed by the City of Plano. These Judges and city attorney’s prosecute or preside over all Class C arrests made or tickets issued in the City of Plano. There are 3 City of Plano municipal court Judges: Donald Stevenson the Chief Administrative Judge, James McCarthy an associate Judge and Paul McMulty an associate Judge. There are two city attorneys that evaluate the tickets and make plea offers.
If you do not timely appear within 10 days of being ticketed or arrested, a warrant will be issued for your arrest and you will have to locate money to post bond in order to get out of jail. If you cannot afford to post bond, you may have to sit out your Plano class C ticket through jail time at the City of Plano jail and end up with a criminal conviction that can never be removed from your record. Class C tickets are the least serious of all the misdemeanors, but can have long lasting negative effects on your record if not handled properly. Please contact me today at my Plano office regarding your Class C case.
