Turner State Court
The Turner State Court building is located at 219 East College Street in Ashburn, Georgia. If you have been issued a traffic ticket that will be heard in Turner State Court, the court urges you to pay your fines as quickly as you can. They provide a way of paying online or by phone, plus they accept payment in person. However, paying your fine automatically results in your case being closed. It is the same as pleading no contest or guilty. You will not get your chance to defend your actions or explain your side of the story.
In fact, Turner State Court actually will not give you your day in court unless you ask for it. If you want to plead not guilty, you will need to notify the court within 45 days of your ticket by writing to them. If you do not and do not pay your fine within those 45 days, your license may be suspended. The court does not provide extensions to this deadline. In order to make certain that you get a court date and that all of the required paperwork has been filed, call us as soon as you can. We will make certain that you are allowed to appear before a judge and share what happened to you.
Turner State Court Traffic Violations
If you do pay your fine without going to trial, it is important to understand what could occur. In addition to having a guilty plea on your driving record, you may find your auto insurance premiums increase. Insurance companies often check driving records before they renew policies. If they see that you have a speeding ticket violation, they may no longer offer you their safe driver discount. If you have a number of tickets, they may increase your premiums or even decline to renew your policy. Having a number of traffic violations can also make it difficult to earn a commercial drivers’ license or seek employment for a position that requires you to operate a motor vehicle as part of your daily job duties.
