My question involves a speeding ticket from the State of: Washington (Jefferson County)
**Bad luck since this is my 2nd ticket in a month. Prior to this my driving record was clean for over 4 years.
The court first sent a notice that my "Contested Hearing" would be Nov 22. I received a second notice for my "Contested Hearing" for Dec 13. Both state it is a Contested Hearing and both have identical case numbers "WA IO6...." I'm not sure what to do since I just discovered this second notice while reviewing my discovery documents this morning (Saturday). Seems like the court screwed up.
Discovery documents state that the SMD radar device is suppose to be tested every 2 years. The test log shows the device the officer cited in his written stated was last certified on Aug 8, 2008. My infraction is dated Sept 19 2010.
How do I request the case to be dismissed based on this evidence?
The officer also states in his written statement that he tested the SMD before and after stopping me. He doesn't say exactly when the device was tested and from reading other posts it could be argued that the tests weren't performed the day of the infraction.
Is this something I should also use?
