My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: Washington (Snohomish County)
I received a ticket for using a cell phone yo make a call. The officer indicates I had the phone to my ear. I had my window down and was resting my head on my hand waiting for a green light to make a left hand turn (it was a nice day in April). The officer was located between 150 and 240 feet from the turn lane with his car parked looking east. I was facing south waiting to turn.
I have cell phone call and text records showing I didn't make or receive any calls within 30 minutes of the ticket. The whole interaction lasted less than 10 minutes. I can also show the last call I made was using hands free (my Google search saves and it states "call jonn smith mobile" ). My car also has hands free integration and I was playing music (Pandora couldn't give me records showing I was using their app at the time but I did email them to ask them the day after the ticket).
My question is should I bring all this evidence? Will the judge accept it? Should I bring the digital copies or paper copies? Do I need them notarized or anything? Pictures of my car with the phone in hands free mode?
I can show the distance between his car and mine using engineering software. Would that be helpful to show he didn't have the best view?
For discovery can I request the records in digital form if available? Can/should ask for video/pictures the prosecuter may have?
