Was this the first court date? Or was there other ones that got postponed?methyl wrote: ↑Jun 21st, 2018 6:12 pmHas anyone had experience with relying on Jordan decision?
A relative got a ticket for dangerous driving after the other driver convincingly lied to the cop about the reason for an accident that the other driver caused. The trial will be in August, over 19 months after the charge. Wondering how vigorously do prosecutors try to argue 'exceptional circumstances' for delays to avoid having the charge dropped and what to watch out for?
Dangerous driving (as opposed to careless driving) is a criminal charge. I'd be getting a lawyer, myself... Actually, even for careless driving, I'd probably be looking at getting a lawyer or paralegal. The impact of a conviction on those charges is much greater than most other offenses.
