My question involves a speeding ticket from the State of Washington:
At our traffic court, the officer does not have to appear but he submits an affidavit which is all the evidence the commissioner gets from the prosicution.
The issue on this affidavit is that the officer put down a location where he was parked and where the violation occured which is the wrong location by over a mile. This is somewhat important because we were on our way home and turn off the highway about 1/2 mile before the location that he stated all this occured. He fails to mention that he was working with another officer who had an unmarked car and his marked car was paralled and hidden behind it as he allegedly shot the laser which would have had to go through the unmarked car. He stated in the affidavit that he was sitting down at the time.
It had been raining and all the windows were wet which means his laser, if it missed the officer, had to go through three windows in two directions at a range of 1200 ft. My guess, which I think I can prove, is that the other officer actually shot the laser.
Do I have a case??
