That sucks. Did they give any feedback on what exactly was "too much"? Was it your testimony in court, or in your statement to the police?

As far as on your record, start here:

Seemed to have good information for you Ontarians... There's different types of "records".

They told me I need to answer yes or no and not go into details. Not sure if it matters but when I was testfying the police officer kept on playing on his phone taking pics and looking at them and laughing. I taught they were suppose to be professional.

Ok... Who is "they"? The ticket fighter you hired? If so, did they tell you that you were going to be testifying, and go over what you were going to be asked (and review what your replies would be)? Did they put the officer on the stand? What kind of questions did they ask you and the officer?

The professionalism of the officer isn't an issue, so it doesn't matter.

Am I legally allowed to post my disclosure on here, what sensitive information should I block out?

I can barely understand the officers notes.

The person I hired told me that I answered in too much detail. He put the officer on the stand. He didn't really spend much time explaining to me to how testify. But he did say I will need to go on stand.

He questioned the officer: the procecuter questioned me. Asked him to clarify his statement. One of the questions if he was behind my vehicle watching me why didn't he turn on sirens and pull me over instead he came next to me asked me to open my window and to pull into the plaza. Also to clarify how did he see me using my phone if he was watching me from behind for 30 seconds.

I got convicted and was told because I provided too much detail during my testimony. Now will this charge stay on my record for 2-3 years?, also does it start from the day I got the ticket or the day I got lost in trial.. how much should I expect insurance to go up by?
It stays on your record forever, but for purposes of insurance they only consider tickets within 3 years starting from conviction date.

Does conviction mean, the date they found you guilty in court, or the date the officer issued the ticket?

The day they found you guilty in court.

If you went to court and were found guilty or plead guilty, it is that date. If you paid the ticket when the officer gave it to you, you plead guilty so it's that date.

Does anyone know the current timing of the Halton courts? I need to delay conviction past Oct 20 for my insurance renewal and wondering what my odds are. What are the best reasons for adjournments?

You can try to reopen it. You will also need to fill out the form that asks why it took so long to do it.

6 months I would say. 8-10 in GTA. Rarely are they over one year now.

Yikes :( One adjournment was easy for me in the past. How likely is it getting two?
