What will happen if I got a misdemeanor for shoplifting and took a class to get it taken off my record but just now got a speeding ticket?

The shoplifting conviction was my first offense. If I just got a speeding ticket, will it cause the misdemeanor to stay on my record?

Fortunately for you most speeding tickets if the excessive speed is not too much over the posted speed limit of a give jurisdication are infractions which would not have any impact with respect to the misdemeanor that you received. Given what you have written, I suggest that you may wish to consult further with a criminal defense attorney in your locality to be sure. One can be found in attorneypages.
