Fighting Juvenile client’s speeding ticket in Cherokee
On Thursday, November 8, 2018, I appeared with my client, who is 16 years old, in the Juvenile Court of Cherokee County.
My client had been ticketed for driving his vehicle 65 mph in a 45 mph zone.
Georgia Code 4 –6 –181 sets specific speed limits on different types of roads and highways throughout the state of Georgia.
Georgia Code 40-6-181 also establishes court fines for each increment of speed above the speed limit.

My client Speed was 20 mph over the posted speed limit. 
Because my client is 16 years old, if he was convicted of driving 20 mph over the limit, the penalties would be more severe because of his  young age.

Following negotiation with the prosecutor, I was able to get the court to agree to reduce my client’s speed to 59 mph in a 45 mph zone. This makes my client’s speed 14 mph over the limit which makes it a non-re-portable ticket to the Georgia department of driver services.

In exchange for this my client will be required to complete a one time teen victim impact panel (teen driver awareness course.) He will also be required to pay a fine of $235.

My client also has a second pending speeding ticket charge in Fulton County Juvenile Court.
The Fulton County Court will not find out about his Cherokee County ticket, due to today's outcome and the reduction of his speed to 14 over.

Therefore, the Fulton County case will not be negatively impacted by the Cherokee County case.
