Misdemeanor Traffic Offenses
Misdemeanor traffic offenses are much more serious than basic infractions.
Infractions such as tailgating will result in fines and points on your
record, but rarely result in jail time. Misdemeanor traffic offenses can
result in fines and even jail time, but more importantly, can leave you
with a permanent criminal record.

How Tilem & Associates, PC Can Help
If you plead guilty to a misdemeanor traffic violation, you will have a
permanent criminal record. In addition, the court will not deliberate
much about the penalties. You will get the standard fines, points on your
license, and possibly jail time, without the opportunity to give your
side of the story or get a reduced sentence.
We have a history of convincing courts to free our clients from unreasonable
penalties. We can negotiate for non-criminal pleas, lesser punishments
or challenge charges in court. Often, if you take a misdemeanor
traffic violation to trial, police officers may not bother to present enough evidence or
even show up to court.
