I need a bit of courtroom advice....
« on: July 27, 2010, 12:02:51 AM »
I'm going Friday to contest a ticket I got from my wreck on June 29th. It was raining and I went to change lanes, traffic stopped, I slid and rear ended a car during the lane change attempt. The cops issued me a Following to Close ticket based on the witness account of some random bitch, the cop did NOT see the accident. A lawyer friend of mine told me to take it to court because admitting guilt to the ticket puts the whole wreck on me and screws my insurance company.

What I want is some advice on how to contest it. If the officer doesn't show up I skate free right? And what about the witness bitch...if she isn't there do they have to throw it out from lack of proof?

Just tell them what happened... and it really depends on the courts as far as how they handle it.

In new york state the cops don't even have to show up to court.  I pled not guilty to the only ticket I've had since I've lived up here and there was just a judge, the DA and me.  No cop no nothing.  I explained to the DA the situation and what I wanted to happen and he agreed and plead me down.

Only down side is that I just got out of rehab, and just got back from Italy...so all I'm going to have is like 400 bucks cash to my name Friday when I go to court...I wonder if I can get it dropped to like a seat belt ticket...
