Re: Ticketed B/C of Accident, Will This Advice Beat the Ticket? (Georgia)
That's MOSTLY true, I believe. However, even though the officer did not witness the accident and cannot testify as to what the OTHER parties may have told him (hearsay), he CAN testify as to what YOU told him. So, if you admitted guilt and described what you did (as you did here), the officer CAN give testimony of that. In practice, though, the officer rarely appears, and the prosecution will probably only subpoena the other witness. If he doesn't show up, the ticket will probably be dismissed.
But, I'm NOT an attorney, nor do I have knowledge of GA law, so my advice is worth just about what you paid for it.
Where am I going? And why am I in this handbasket?
