Maryland Traffic Lawyer Explains Reasons To Request A Trial In A Maryland Traffic Case

 If you have a Maryland traffic case and are thinking about requesting a trial, you’re probably headed in the right direction. Trials may seem scary but they can actually end with positive outcomes.

 Here are four reasons you may want to request a trial in a Maryland traffic case:

  1. You may want to have a trial in order to plead not guilty. In other words, you actually want to contest the charges.
  2. The officer who issued the ticket is required to be in court.  If he or she doesn’t show, you’re case will be dropped.
  3. You or your attorney may be able to negotiate a reduction and/or amendment with the officer.
  4. The state of Maryland has the burden to prove you’re guilty—make them do it.
