Looking For A South Carolina Speeding Ticket Defense Attorney?

Do You Know You Have The Right To A Jury Trial?

Many drivers who get speeding tickets simply pay the ticket and move on with their lives. Many don't realize that you don't necessarily have to.

In South Carolina, you have a right to a jury trial for any offense, even to fight a speeding ticket. If everyone chose to exercise this right, the system would be much more clogged than it already is. And prosecutors know this. That's why they are often willing to reduce a speeding charge to a lesser violation just to get the case through the system. This is true even if the driver was going 15 or more miles per hour over the speed limit.

That's why, even if you believe you have been speeding and are tempted to pay the fine and plead guilty, you should still consider exercising your constitutional rights to a lawyer and fighting the charges.
