Cited by an Officer
N/AUS$ 396.00 + 15% Insurance + 1 DMV pointIDR sent, TBWD found guilty. Trial de Novo found GUILTYFeb 2009Any sort of rolling stops are hard to defend. The Officer just need to be there at the trial. Then, Defendant will be found guilty even there were a huge store sign blocked Officer's view. Unfair huh ?!!

In summary for this case, it has involved:
  • 3 Judges
  • 2 courthouse locations
  • 4+ motions filed or requested, 3 were granted
  • Officer showed up 3 times at 2 different courthouses, and at the 3rd time, Officer stood at the 3rd Trial de Novo for 45+ minutes
Obviously, we tried our best to fight this.
N/A
  • Peremptory Challenge to disqualify the Judge (filed at least one week before the 1st Trial de Novo, and granted at the 1st Trial de Novo. A new Judge and court date were set.)
  • Motions for Change of Venue to the County Seat (requested at the 2nd Trial de Novo, and granted)
  • Letter sent to the Judge to request for Continuance and Change of Venue (sent, received, both motions granted at the 2nd Trial de Novo)

N/AUS$ 332.00TRAFFIC SCHOOL and NO DMV POINTNov 2009Defendant went for the court trial without first doing TBWD. Defendant should have done TBWD in the first place! Showed up at the trial two (2) times. For the first time, the Translator did NOT showed up, but the Officer showed up. For the last time, the Translator finally showed up as well as the Officer. Then, Defendant pleaded for traffic school and requested for fine reduction. The reason is that the Engineering & Traffic survey has a 85th percentile speed of 40.8 MPH and the posted speed limit is 35 MPH. Therefore, the posted speed limit is valid. N/AN/ATrialN/AN/AN/A

Defendant should have objected for which the witness (Officer) is incompetent as a witness since he was not at the scene.
This is very UNFAIR!

N/AUS$ 260.00NOT GUILTYMarch 2011 Defendant did not do TBWD. I filed a peremtory challenge a month before the trial, and ended up getting a new judge (2nd Judge). Cop showed up at the trial with the 2nd Judge and Defendant objected to the Cop for reading from his notes, Judge said entitled to see a copy as well. Officer came back in 5 minutes asked if Defendant needed more time to review, Defendant requested for more time. Judge rescheduled the trial with the 3rd Judge. At the trial with the 3rd Judge, cop showed up again there and had other cases. Defendant was asked if it is fine to have a Pro Tem Judge to handle the case, Defendant objected to have a Pro Tem Judge, therefore, Defendant was told that no Judges were available until later in the day, and Defendant agreed to wait for another Judge. (4th Judge). At the trial with the 4th Judge, since it was towards the end of the day, the Officer could not wait, and LEFT the courthouse. So, Defendant was found not guilty. Defendant did not use TBWD or TDN. However, Defendant learned about Peremptory Challenge and Pro Tem Judge objection from MotherCopper.com, so we included this case here.
