Top local Austin attorneys answer basic legal questions:
What if the officer doesn't show up in court for a speeding ticket case?
If the officer who issued the ticket doesn't appear on your court date, there's a good chance the ticket will be dismissed. In some cases, the judge might issue a second court date, however. But if the officer STILL doesn't show up, the case is dismissed. Even if you don't have a strong defense, it may be worth fighting a ticket for a minor violation on the chance that the officer won't appear.
That's more likely to happen if you were barely speeding vs. going 40 miles over the legal limit and running a red light or something along those lines.
What if a friend of mine is being roughed up by the police while he is being arrested, and I jump in?
Expect to be arrested. You could be arrested for a number of charges including disorderly conduct, disturbing the peace, aiding an escape, or even as an accessory. If possible, get it on video or get other witnesses to see what's happening as this will help your case greatly.
What are the Miranda Rights?
- You have the right to remain silent. Should you give up the right to remain silent, anything you say may be used against you in a court of law.
- You have the right to an attorney and the right to have that attorney present during questioning by the police. If you can't afford a lawyer, one will be appointed to you at no cost.
- If you choose to talk to the police, you have the right to stop the questioning at any time.
