I made a right turn on a red light?

I made a right turn on a red light, there was no sign saying Dont Turn On Red, there was a sign that said Photo Enforced Includes Right Turns, but I came to a complete stop and checked for Pedestrians, did I make an illegal turn?

Update:

In an intersection in california

    As far as I know, if it's not clearly posted by the light (or in the general vicinity), you did everything legal.

    Your turn was legal. The photo enforcement is for persons that turn right without stopping.

    Ask the department that ticked you.

    WHY did you get a ticket?

    That might help your case.

    The cameras only go off when a vehicle is in location where it is illegal to be at a particular moment. Apparently you didn't see the "no turn on red" sign but if you can prove there was no sign, that's your defense in traffic court. But you will need lots of photos and multiple witness statements also stating there is no sign.

    There are a few exceptions. I know in New York City a right-on-red is illegal by default unless there is a sign allowing it. And there’s at least 2 or 3 other places within the US that also do this.

    Right turns on red have been legal in the US, since the Pres. Ford days. Unless a sign was there to forbid it. You do not say where in the world you did this, tho.

    No, you did not.

    Unless it was onto a one-way road going against you, I don't see a problem.
