Thanks is advance!
What kind of a man would put a known criminal in charge of a major branch of government? Apart from, say, the average voter.
As FiReSTaRT said, the ticket is based on what happened at the time. Removal of the island at a later date doesn't matter. Where was the officer when you made the turn? As long as you turned into the right-most lane and didn't cut anyone off, I don't see a problem. You should be able to beat this in court, if I understand the circumstances correctly.
Have you made a disclosure request yet?
Thanks for you help.
