"Pull that off" implies that I did anything to help the situation, which was not the case. Upon advice of several people, I showed up at traffic court. The judge read through all the charges for all 150 or so people, of which about 30 showed up. (Number of cases was high due to Labor Day falling on one of the traditional Traffic Court dates). The judge instructed everyone to plead not guilty if they were looking to cut a deal with the prosecuting attorney.
At that point, there was a delay while they waited for an interpreter for three defendants who could not speak English. After 5-10 minutes, the interpreter was there, and 2 of the three defendants chose the option to go upstairs and look into counsel, while the other plead guilty. After that, the judge and clerks left the courtroom.
The prosecuting attorney went through the citations in a fairly random fashion, based on which citation was at the top of his stack of papers. Most of the discussions were fairly quiet; seemingly, the most embarrassing ones were louder. Lots of them seemed to be for driving after revocation.
After the attorney had gone through all the citations in his "to do" stack, it was only the two of us left in the courtroom. He looked back at me and asked what my name was. After I told him, he was unable to find the citation in his paperwork. At about the same time, someone came in and asked him where people should be waiting for family court.
I sat down with him and indicated that I had a copy of my citation with me. He looked though his booklet and said "how do you feel about 'Interfering with a sign' - it is $170 and 0 points". "That would be fine" was the obvious response. It was unclear how much he was bargaining on the other tickets, but it was pretty obvious that the combination of them losing my paperwork and his need to get to another appointment made a difference.
So, in summary, I guess I would just recommend that if you are heading to the Fox Valley or points north, just take US 151 all they way to Fond Du Lac, and avoid STH 26 entirely.
