Got a call 3 weeks ago to come and pick up the evidence. Today I went to pick up the evidence. They had me standing there for more than 10 minutes, finally telling me they can't find it and that perhaps they'll have it at the court??
Anyways, wanted to know if this has provided me with a chance perhaps?
Well, I'd still try to use this to convince the JP to stay... probably will not work, but it might depending on how you present this (and, if they do not have your disclosure at trial, then your chances are much better... you can argue that the prosecution did not follow JP's orders and is wasting everybody's time... including JP's, which no self-respecting JP will like).CNeufeld wrote: ↑Mar 7th, 2018 8:15 pmIt doesn’t really change things much for you, especially if you didn’t request disclosure before your first trial. They’ll probably have it for you at the trial, which means you can request another trial.
Keep track of your interactions with them. Dates, etc. It will be an accumulation of wasted time on your part that may help your argument. A single wasted trip probably won’t mean much.
