Saint Patrick's Day. Be smart. Be safe.
Traffic Ticket in South Carolina?
A word to the wise this Saint Patricks Day weekend— If you plan on celebrating in the traditional way, do not get in your car and drive; do not get in a car with a driver who has been drinking. Don’t do it!
In our legal system, you are presumed innocent. This means that you have the legal right to fight that ticket in Court. You have the constitutional right to plead before a judge that you are not guilty and to demand a trial on the charge made out in the ticket.
The most important thing you can do for yourself right now is to consult an attorney. You need to know exactly what your legal rights are and what potential defenses may be available to you, given the particular facts and circumstances of your case.
