Re: Washington State Ticket Discovery Enclosed
The officer's statement (which contains your admission of guilt) cannot be entered into evidence unless it complies with RCW 9A.72.085. It does not. We've been over this.
It doesn't matter if you stated you killed a man on the tuesday before last. The prosecutor cannot enter your statement(s) into evidence unless the witness is there to give live testimony, or the affidavit containing your "admissions against party interests" complies with RCW 9A.72.085.
Sure, they can get another continuance, but you've already been to court twice now. My argument would be that the prosecution should have known what their case was - EXACTLY - before appearing in front of a jurist. The first rule of criminal procedure: a municipality should NOT charge a case unless they have enough evidence to convict. Here... they clearly do not. The prosecutor is mocking the court system by continually being unprepared for the hearing. The second a prosecutor asks for a continuance: object and request dismissal.
Oh, and get this: IT'S A TRAFFIC INFRACTION!!! Sometimes it amazes me how ridiculous prosecutors can be over a few hundred bucks... *shakes head*
