But when you admit guilt when found... you pass up all rights. You will still get your day in court, but theres no way you plead "NOT GUILTY".

'Due process' means he keeps his rights to explain to a judge in a court of law, and while waiting, sit in a cell for up to 3 days.
1) The County of Riverside standard is no more than 48 hours. 2) You can sit in jail for up to 60 days on a felony and 45 days on a misdemeanor in Louisiana without the DA even accepting the charges if you can't make bail.

People are arrested every minute for misdemeanour charges. Tickets are usually for infractions, not misdemeanours, as in traffic violations.
Actually, tickets are often given for misdemeanors and serve as the court summons

I'd call that proven guilty.
Innocent until proven guilty, in a court of law. That last part is the most important

Depends on how much it is worth. If it is my older 20gb model, no. If it is a brand new one, maybe. The magic number is a value of $300 or more.
