My question involves a speeding ticket from the State of: CA
for violation of CVC 22349a. I have lost my TBWD. I received my request for trial de novo.
Q1: I'm pretty sure I have to be in court in person for the trial de novo but just wanted to confirm that I cannot do a 2nd TBWD for my trial de novo.
Q2: On other threads by That_Guy, he advised obtaining the officer's statement or written declaration before the trial de novo but my question is how do I go about getting that info? Do I serve an informal discovery request to the DA at the courthouse that I am assigned to? Or can I just goto je courthouse and ask the clerk to get a copy of the info?
I am planning on the info on www.helpigotaticket.com website to prepare for the trial. Most likely the only way for me to win this will be through motion for dismissal based on maybe inaccurate testimonial from the officer (if he shows) compared to his written declaration. Or dismissal based on the checklist.
Please advise and thank you very much for your time. Especially mr. That_Guy.
