    Default Late Notice of Contested Hearing and Late Receipt of Discovery

    My question involves traffic court in the State of: Othello, Washington

    I'm not sure how to defend my case. I think I have a couple options.

    First, the notice of Hearing was late, I received my ticket on 06/25 and the notice is dated 07/29, although I haven't filed a motion for a speedy trial which I'll do now (1 day late)
    Second, the discovery is dated 08/05 but have just received it now, I sent this on 07/25 with a court date of 08/13.
    Third, the officers statement says I admitted guilt which I did not expressly do.

    Are any of these helpful in my case?
    I'm very lost right now.

    8/13 is within 120 days of 6/25. I don't know what speedy trial argument you are trying to make. Failure to make a timely motion for the speedy trial would waive the right anyhow.

    Not receiving discovery on time doesn't in itself give you an out unless you can show the lack of timely provision of the information was prejudicial to your case.

    You can rebut the statement you admitted guilt, but that probably isn't going to make much of a difference. I suspect the officer's evidence has more than just your personal admission of guilt in it.
