    Depends on the state. In my state you get all as much due process as you need, but if you still lose you get to pay a ton of court costs.

    All I've got is an orange blog, three paragraphs, and the truth.

      and clearly you would know judging by user name but I was just pointing out that they err in their expectations.

      Why was my hubby denied his constitutionally protected rights?

      ie. they weren't.

        Let me clarify: in my state, infractions get the same due process rights as a misdemeanor case, but in general, if they can get away with it not being called criminal, then the Bill of Rights protections won't apply, and your due process will be only controlled by the due process clause of the XIV amendment and applicable state law.
