I have a couple of questions:
As the court date is greater than one year, would this ticket be thrown out? If so, what past president case should I be referencing?
Does the disclosure corrent information help me in any way that the bottom 2" of the copy has information from another ticket not related to my case?
What would be the best defense if I were to fight this ticket alone?
What would be the non-demerit point charge that I should accept if I was offered a plea bargain?
I have a clean driving record. As 3 points are involved in this ticket, should I hire a paralegal to defend this ticket?
Thanks for your help!
If your matter does take more then a year to reach trial, and none of the delays are attributed to you (i.e. you didn't ask for an adjournment), you can try to proceed with an 11b Charter argument (your right to a speedy trial has been compromised). Do a search of the forums, there are several guides/posts that will walk you through the process. It can be a bit of work, and 12 months is the bare minimum.
If you decide to fight the ticket, you basically need to argue reasonable doubt, i.e. the Crown can't show you failed to stop. Might be tough if there's actual video. Possible plea deal might be to disobey lane light, which carries no demerit points I believe.
FYI, don't get hung up on demerit points. Insurance providers go by number of convictions, regardless of demerit points. The only time I'd worry about points is if you were about to lose your licence because of them.
