I received a speeding citation on January 29th. I contested the ticket and received my hearing notice. I sent my request for discovery via certified mail and have confirmation that it was received by the prosecuting attorney's office (snohomish county) on March 1st. My trial date is March 18th. I also sent a copy to the district court where the hearing will take place, via certified mail. Because the USPS web site wasn't showing that it was received, I attempted to call. Snohomish County district court doesn't answer their phones anymore, but I was able to speak to someone via the Prosecuting Attorney's office and the "infractions desk" who verified that [I]both[I] the prosecutor's office and the court received and filed my discovery request on March 1st.
Today is March 11, 7 days prior to hearing and I have not received my discovery or anything from them. My question is - now what? How do I know for sure they didn't send it (did mail screw up?) - what if I didn't get it because there is no officer's statement? Do I just wait until the hearing and, if I still have nothing, attempt to get the infraction dismissed? What if they show up with the officer's statement but I have never seen it? ...or...what if I receive my discovery tomorrow, or any day prior to the trial?
Advice greatly appreciated!! Thanks
