"Jeanine Piro - Fox News Loudmouth clocked at 119mph!"

Taking care of sick parents is not fun, but that is too fast. To take some of the pressure off, she should just hire a driver.

that is up to the court isnt it? and she has a court date on the ticket, and she most likely will be in front of a judge, and will plead her case to that judge, and that judge will decide. as i said, the cop have leeway, and the judge has leeway, as well as the prosecutor in the case.

The office already had his say, he issued the ticket for 119 MPH in a 65 MPH zone. That part is done.

Most jurisdictions let you speak with an ADA before going in front of the judge as I said, but most will not give too much leeway when someone is ticketed for going 54 MPH over the speed limit. So in all likelihood, it is most likely up to the judge who may or may not take offense at down-state city folk tear-a$$ing through their town.

the officer still needs to testify in court, so no he has NOT had his say.

but again the ADA and the judge all have plenty of leeway s they see fit to deal this down, reduce the fine, reduce the charge, etc.
