So my speeding ticket that I got in the beginning of March was supposed to go to trial August 1st. I worked out a deal with my boss to get a day off work and take the 4 hour drive to fight this thing. Today I get a envelope that states the date is being changed to Sept 20 because the officer cannot make it. I cannot make that new date now. The thing didnt come registered or with any kind of delivery confirmation. What would happen if i was to show up in court the original court date and ask for my trial then?
My guess is that the prosecuting attorny was expecting me to call and take his very poor plea bargain offer and now that the date is close he has not gotten his case together. What ever happened to the right to a speedy trial There are questions i wanted to ask the officer that were very important to the case and i fell he will not remember anything by then.
