So I got a speeding ticket on November 6, 2010 at 4:15am for doing 86 in a 60. My court date was set for August 18, 2011 at the Markham Road courthouse, I had requested disclosure 9 weeks prior to the court date but was not provided disclosure so the JP adjourned the matter. The officer was present and provided me with a copy of his notes. What shocked me was that the prosecutor issued me a new court date on September 2, 2011! This is 15 days after my initial court date and the day I was provided with disclosure. I was expecting a court date of atleast 2-3 months after my initial court date, allowing me to file 11b but that wasn't the case. What can I do at this point? The officer was not consulted when the new date was offered. I did notice that the officers notes did not have any test results for the radar he used, which is Bee III. Also no test times were given, all that was written was that the radar was tested before and after the stop... Any advice on how I should proceed would be helpful
If the officer made no notes in regards to testing, you could easily beat the ticket. I'm not sure if the fact he recorded the device was tested but not the times would be sufficient for Court (my guess is yes).
If the officer shows on the next Court date, might be worth seeking a plea deal to a lesser offence, unless testing times are required.
What's the additional disclosure you've requested?
