Speeding Infraction Violation Set for Bench Trial and Dismissed!

Recently, in Los Angeles County at the Pasadena Courthouse our office successfully obtained a complete dismissal for a client charged with two infraction Vehicle Code offenses for allegedly violating Vehicle Code section 22350, “Driving at a Speed Greater than Reasonable or Prudent,” and Vehicle Code section 22350, “Failure to Possess Driver’s License When Driving Motor Vehicle upon Highway.”

On infraction matters if the law enforcement officer that issued the citation does not appear at the bench trial date then the charges are completely dismissed. In order to put our case in the best position for a dismissal, we began by continuing the arraignment online as far out as possible. We then appeared at the arraignment, entered a not guilty plea, and set the matter for a bench trial.

At the bench trial, the officer did not appear and the charges were completely dismissed!

If you are cited with a traffic infraction violation, at a minimum, you should appear at the arraignment and set the case for a bench trial! If the officer appears, you can attempt to negotiate the charges with the officer to a zero point count offense or seek a reduced fine! If the officer does not appear, then your case will be dismissed!
