Fictitious Plates

Man do I wish I found this site earlier. I purchased a vehicle in June and now in November I have yet to receive the title to the vehicle. I was pulled over the day after and cited for expired tags as the previous owner had not renewed them since april. (charges dropped by prosecutor because I did not own the vehicle but secured insurance for it) I parked the vehicle since that until the other evening I drove it to take my girlfriend to an appointment (being dark I did not want her walking in the the area she was going) I was pulled over and cited again for exp tags and now for fictitious plates because there was a new sticker affixed to the tag. I worked at an auto salvage distributor and the only thing I can think is that one of my former coworkers thought it was helping me out to put the sticker on there to make it look legal. I am scheduled for court tomorrow and will be requesting a continuance. Beyond that, should I secure counsel? What are the penalties I face and does my lack of anything above minor traffic offenses in the past help my case?
