Sounds like they've been watchin that spot waitin for their ticket writin party.

We have that problem with the Wildlife Officials in the forest. You can be ridin on public OHV land, but as soon as that wheel hits private land, out they come.

hahaha hopefully its not a huge deal, the cop took a lot of pics, of where we were and the trucks, and our faces and all that. my biggest complaint is that it happened 4 hours away from home so now i have to get a day off from work (court date is a damn tuesday at 8:30 AM...) and deal with it.

You can plead not guilty which I recommend, if you can get a lawyer, and the other thing is if you have ridden there before and it wasn't off limits, make sure you can prove that, or at least make it stated. I hope you were polite and courteous to the officers regardless of if it was stupid or not. You may also try and find the property owners, ask for forgivness and have them sign something saying you apologized and that you won't do it again, they might just drop the whole thing

i have always wondered why people who got caught red handed would plead not guilty... but i dont think ill be getting a lawyer seeing as the ticket hopefully shouldnt be horrible.

what exactly was your charge? i got a "recreational trespassing" ticket (for wheelin) when i was 17 and all i got was a $70 fine, and couldnt get in any trouble for 3 months. it was like a bargain we made that if i stayed out of trouble, the charge would be dropped

Sounds more like you were maybe "trespassed" meaning they documented that you were warned to not come back and if you do they will ticket/arrest you. I find it hard to believe it is a ticket with a fine and they did not put the amount on it anywhere.

How old are you? 601-608 looks like its all juvenile related...

i think it doesnt have an amount on it because i have to go to court to find out how much trouble im in, its not just a stop sign violation or something, but hopefully nothing big.

I received a seat belt ticket b4 I got my ranger (in august) and it had no price to pay on it. If that's not a "standard" ticket than I don't know what is. All u r going to have to do is go to the court local to the ticket given after u get the "courtesy" letter in the mail that will give u more info possibly on payment cause shit in ca is backed up and broke...Prepare 4 waiting in line and paying some big dough.

----------

Just try not to worry yourself to death about it. You don't know what ur going to have to do to fix this untill u get something in the mail or the court tells u what u have to do. If it's an extensive fine that u just can't afford then there is allways comm service/jailtime either way your going to have to pay. It's just what happens when u decide to break the law.

Easy one.
Find out ahead of time who owns the land and if it is posted anywhere. Go to court pleading Not Guilty and DEMAND to have the accuser, who MUST BE the landowner, press charges against you. They will not have been notified and the ticket should be dismissed.

Sounds like a nuisance OR money maker wrap. Tickets are for safety violations...you didn't endanger anyone. People have too much money and pay these things instead of standing up to them.

This is a bit like the photo tickets. Demand to have your accuser there in court...this is usually a company who contracts with the city and the ticket will be dismissed.
