Getting A Recommendation From The Prosecutor On A Kansas City MO Traffic Ticket - starting at $35


A “recommendation” is something that the local prosecutor passes on to the judge.  In effect, the prosecutor is recommending that the judge not sentence you to the original charge, but rather to a lesser offense.  This is the foundation of a plea bargain:  instead of getting pinned on the higher charge, you cut a deal that allows you to take a lesser offense.


The same logic is at work when dealing with a Kansas City MO traffic ticket.  Your attorney (us) will ask let the prosecutor know that he/she has been hired to work on your case.  The attorney will request that the prosecutor “recommend” a lower charge.  And if this recommendation is accepted by the driver and the judge, then the ticket can described as “fixed”.  


But what happens if you do not hire a Kansas City MO speeding ticket attorney?  What happens if you decide to handle the ticket on your own?  The first thing to point out is that when people represent themselves (even on a simple traffic ticket), they almost always plead guilty.  And pleading guilty to a traffic ticket in Kansas City MO is very, very easy!  All you have to do is pay the fine listed on the back of the ticket, and wham!, you have plead guilty!!

Of course, most folks have no idea that paying the fine listed on the back of the ticket is the same thing as pleading guilty.  Most folks believe (incorrectly) that paying the fine will resolve the ticket once and for all.  But the exact opposite is true.  Pleading guilty will allow the Department of Revenue to put points onto your permanent driving record.

“Points” are like little red flags that make it appear as if you are a bad driver.  If you have points on your record, your car insurance provider will jack up your monthly rates through the roof!  This rate increase can be as much as 35% above your current premiums.  I don’t know about you, but that seems like a significant jump to someone’s household budget!  Especially if it is an extra expense that can so easily be avoided!!  

So it is very important to get in touch with us as soon as possible.  Give us a call, shoot us a text, send us an email, or fill out an online form.  We will gather all necessary information, answer all your questions, and get you back out on the road safely!  But please do try and reach out to us well before your court hearing.  Because if you wait too long, and miss a required hearing, the judge will not hesitate to issue a warrant for your arrest.  We have the ability to get the warrant recalled, but it’s easier if all we are trying to fix is the ticket itself!
