murthyram Posted July 6, 2011 Report Share Posted July 6, 2011 I was booked under section 28-701.02A3 for speeding 95 MPH in a 65 MPH zone today - 07/06/2011. This happened in Phoenix, Arizona. This is my first ever Ticket. I was slapped with a a huge fine and mandatory court visit. Cop, didn't arrest me or jailed me. I was on my way to Doctor's Office and was very close to missing the appointment, so i was driving fast. Cop, listened to my explanation. He even talked to doctor's office and confirmed that i really had an appointment. Also, in the citation, it says that I'm not eligible for Traffic School, as this is a Criminal Traffic Offense. Can someone please help me with the following questions: 1) Is there any way I can get this off my Driver record? 2) Will it affect my GreenCard Process and H1B Visa Process? Since it is a criminal citation, it will go onto my records. I don't want that to happen. Do i need to mention "Yes" in all my job applications, visa applications, I-485 and AOS forms? For Conviction & Criminal Cases. I am planning to go for H1B stamping in August. 3) I have not Paid the fine yet. Should I appeal it, hire a lawyer or what should i do to get this off as a criminal offence? Please reply. I really appreciate your time and help. Thanks. Quote Link to comment
