Default Lawyer in Cincinnati?/need ticket help

Need a lawyer to get me out of a ticket in Cincinnati

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!
Thanks!
-Frank 586-216-9696

See story below:

On the way back from Lake Cumberland Sunday I was crossing the Kentucky/Ohio border & wasn't paying attention-3 miles in got a ticket for 73 in a 55-Thought it was 65mph

Problem is that I have a ticket in Mich under advisement & if I get the 18 over in Ohio + the Mich ticket Wham! 8 points & that will REALLY screw me on my boat insurance

Unreal they give you your court date on the spot w/ the ticket & it's next Friday-Nice notice!

Driving record and boating record are completely seperate in MI. Tickets in the car shouldn't affect your boat insurance.

Of course, it might anyway, and 8 points will screw something up, regardless.

I don't have any recommendation, but good luck.

I got nailed going through Cinci Sunday also...... 75/55 They had 6 cars pulled over at once. All tickets were courtesy of the eye in the sky. Nice way to end the trip. No excuse for the speed, but I was in the middle of a line of vehicles that happened to all be traveling at the same rate of speed and was just keeping up with traffic. Oh well....... too bad the cop failed to notice my expired plate on the trailer.

The insurance company just pulled my MVR w/ the state of Mich to quote my new boat insurance-So there is definitely a link
Needless to say this is going to cost me BIG TIME if I can't get out of it-Was hoping for someone familiar w/ the Ohio laws etc..That could give me some advice
Thanks!

ScarabCV-Isn't 20 over = 4 points? What are you going to do? Please advise

No, I believe that it's still only 2 points.... although very unneeded! I HAD a clean record, so it won't hurt me too much besides my wallet, but if I were you, I would find a local attorney in your hometown to advise you. Who knows, you may get lucky and find that he has a tie to another who practices in Cinci.
Good Luck. -Scott

Simple solution & I've done this myself as well with my drivers. Pay the ticket but pay a few bucks more. When they send back the over payment check DO NOT cash it. This will not let them close the case.

Who wrote the ticket? Cincy PD? OSHP?

I got nailed for 71 in a 55 on my way home from Cumberland in Nicholasville, KY.
First speeding ticket I've had in over 15 years.
I just happened to be at the end of the line of vehicles traveling at the same speed I was
$160.
