This deals with matters in the state of pennsylvania.
Earlier in the week I plead not guilty to a speeding ticket. I went to the court clerk and asked a couple questions to try and help build my case. First I asked for a copy of court rules, and she said there is no document explaining rules. Then I asked who the prosecutor was, and she said "There is no prosecutor, it's not a criminal case. It's just you, the judge, and the cop in the courtroom"
I don't understand how this can be possible. In the absence of a prosecution, who in the court room can legally uphold the charges being brought against me by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania? The cop is not a bar certified attorney, so he cannot legally represent the plaintiff. He is a witness at best.
This sounds like one giant fraud. I'm tempted to go to trial and motion to dismiss due to the lack of prosecution. Opinions?
PS I requested a continuance so I can have more time to learn how this system works (only had 3 weeks notice of court date) and the judge denied it.
