What should I expect in court? I was going home from work to pick up…
Is there any chance of getting locked up? Should I expect to be put on probation? Will I just get fined and if so how much?
Speeding Ticket Lawyer-Richard’s Answer
There is always a chance of getting locked up. A supreme court case upheld the arrest and jailing of a woman not wearing a seat belt. The maximum penalty for possession in Kentucky is 45 days and or a $250 fine, for possession of less than 8 ounces. I certainly think you will get fined, probation and what type of probation is all up to the judge. The fact you cooperated with the officer is always helpful. I do not practice in Kentucky and do not know the judges in Hart County so I cannot take a guess as to whether they are lenient or not.
