Comments
Guilderland in 2013 has a hot election for town positions, with Mark Grimm bringing a breath of fresh air to the community. Fines must be paid at the time of the plea, or the Court will not accept the plea deal. Lawyers do not get an exception to this rule, and should make sure the client has the money or has advanced enough to cover the likely fine. The DA generally negotiates only with lawyers. If the officer does not appear for trial (not the date on the ticket), the Court will usually dismiss traffic charges. A very busy court. Expect to be there for 2-3 hours. Monday nights, mostly for Guilderland traffic court, are not as bad. Attorneys will usually get in and out in less than one hour. Thursday nights, for criminal matters including DWI, can be brutal. Might be smarter to arrive at 6:30 pm.
