Depending on the charge, we have a system of lawyers here who work for reduced rates for people who don't qualify for a public defender, but can't afford a full lawyer. I think it cost me 300 bucks (Long story)

"Unlawful Speed" is the charge, got any idea of finding one who can get me off in my area?

They were hanging out at the court house when I had my preliminary date. Check your phone book. Here in Minneapolis, a third of the yellow pages is lawyers!!
