22 Km Over (72 In 50 Zone)

Hey all,


I have recently received a ticket for going 22km/h over. The first ticket that I ever gotten.


I have been doing some reading on this site as well as ticketcombat, great site by the way. I decided to go the court route, and once i get my trial date in the mail I will fax a disclosure form. I am going to used the sample one from ticketcombat. From reading the forum I think i am going to ask for the following on the disclosure:

  • copy of the police officers notes

    copy of both sides of the officers copy of the ticket

    typed version of any hand written notes

    statements made by the defendant

    calibration record of the unit

    training record of the officer for the unit

    and a manual


I was wondering if anyone could indicate if this is sufficient and what else i could ask for?


Thanks,

b0b

I would exclude "Statements made by defendant", but otherwise looks fine. Paralegals or 'Bear might comment better though.

copy of the police officers notes: Will get


copy of both sides of the officers copy of the ticket with some tickets there is nothing on the back. With our e-ticketing there is no back


typed version of any hand written notes: will only get if you cannot read officers notes


statements made by the defendant: see officer notes


calibration record of the unit: won't get just get that officer verified calibration


training record of the officer for the unit :Won't get. Officer will just testify that they are qualified or not


and a manual:seems this is dependant on prosecutor. some give manual some only give relevant parts

Wondering if anyone can help.

I have a court date this friday, November 19th, I asked for a disclosure packages back in August when i got my court date. I have not received the disclosure package and was wondering if anyone can tell me how I should proceed during the trial. I didn't file f4 and don't have enough time to do it now. Any help would be appreciated.

If you requested disclosure and the crown has had ample time to produce it and doesn't and the trial dates comes, you should be able to request an adjournment. The delay between that date and the next one counts against the crown for an 11(b) motion.

Yes. Disclosure, motions, etc., are preliminary matters and must be dealt with before the trial starts. Show up early, check in with the Prosecutor. Do NOT accept the disclosure package if they have it and want to give it to you before trial. Tell them that you are going to have to speak to the JP first. Instead, when the trial is about to start, and they ask you "how do you plead," mention that before you are making any pleas, the Prosecutor has not provided disclosure which was requested in August. That should force an adjournment. If they say "okay, well we will give it to you now, so go review it and come back in five minutes," object and point out that the Prosecutor needs at least 15 days notice just for a Notice of Constitutional Question, and also could not produce disclosure even after three months, so how could you possibly be expected to do so in five minutes? That would be prejudicial and completely unfair.


Once the adjournment has been forced, you should then be able to file an 11B. If you're not comfortable with the process, you can get a paralegal to do it for you. Usually in Toronto the Prosecutors simply withdraw the charges if an 11B is filed rather than fight it out. They're way too busy to argue Constitutional Questions on a daily basis with the clogged court system.

I would suggest this is border line making a false statement in court as disclosure (no matter how late) was provided/available by the crown. Can do the same thing with a little more tact and will look a lot more positive on your part by accepting disclosure from the prosecution. Then explain to JP only received disclosure this AM, when your request was made etc..
