My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: california
I had court today and was representing myself on a case where i had allegedly made an illegal right turn by not obeying a "no right turn on red" . i had proved there where the officer was located when he allegedly observed me make the illegal turn that he could not see my turn arrow and had photos to prove the matter.
in my closing statements I said alot of things and one of the statements was "your honor i have never been pulled over for a moving violation except this one, and it is clear in my mind that i am not guilty" the judge then looked at my record and said that i had a ticket for not stopping at a stop light and that i had lied to him and that that means that i could be lying in the court room about this case and that i was guilty. however i wasn't PULLED over for the citation, it was mailed to me. the judge didn't allow me to speak after that so i couldn't explain to him the circumstances.
i am 90% sure i would have won the case if the judge wouldn't have said i was a liar
should i ask for an appeal on this case and try with another judge?
