My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: Washington
I am following the instructions Barry posted. I want to file discovery. I know from reading the guide I need to file with prosecutor and clerk. I have a hearing coming up in Shoreline. A few questions:
1. The clerk said I could fax the discovery to court and prosecutor. Has anyone done this and is it a good alternative? E.g. how do I have proof they received it?
2. I will likely ask for deferral unless I donít receive discovery. I read in the guide that prosecutor will read sworn statement first unless thereís pre trial motion. If I donít get discovery materials do I verabally make a pre trial motion? And if I did get discovery materials then should I ask for deferral before the prosecutor makes a statement? Overall will it be clear when I need to do what (I read about going to court before the trial but thatíll be difficult since they scheduled one far from me)?
