I requested disclosure. I received it just this week with my scheduled telephone call to the prosecutor coming up Dec 7th. I got the radar book, my abstract profile and officers notes which basically say I was speeding along with his itinerary of the day.
My question is: What am I going to say when I talk to the prosecutor? Take the reduced deal? Do i take it to court knowing my only hope is that cop doesn't show up? They might even amend my fine to the original if I go to court.

What are you hoping to do? Have your ticket further reduced? If that's the case, you've gone from 4 points to 0 points. They are going to tell you to take it or leave it. The deal you currently have isn't going to get any better in my opinion.bubbahead wrote: My question is: What am I going to say when I talk to the prosecutor? Take the reduced deal?

They are not going to amend your ticket for simply pleading not guilty and showing up to the courthouse. They will revert back to the original fine if you decide the only way to settle the dispute is with a trial. At that point, it will be pretty obvious whether or not the officer is in the building.
As for the officer not attending, don't count on it. It looks like you were part of his speed trap session for the day. You will most likely be bundled up with MANY others who were stopped in the same location or by the same officer under similar circumstances. You can count on the officer to attend.
I'm just trying out all my options
