    Plea of Abeyance

    What is the name of your state? Utah
    Hello, Everyone! I live in Utah.
    About a year ago, I was issued a speeding ticket and entered a plea of abeyance.( when you have no violations for a year, the charges are dismissed as if you never had a violation) I only had one week to the year, and I got a ticket yesterday. I am very concerned. I dont know what to do. I want to try and keep at least one of these off my record, and avoid them both going on!
    Help!! Thanks in advance

    Do you think that there is any way to negotiate this, since I'm so close to the year? DO I have to contact the court I entered the plea on?

    I don't know Utah courts, but I would try to delay your trial date until after your year is up. Hopefully, they will base the year on conviction.... then, since you conviction is after the year, IT IS POSSIBLE, they may not penalize you. they may also see the cite date and go back to that. If so, it is up to their mercy then.
