I'd like to bump my own post up...seemed to have slipped through the net. Reindeer's first appearance is coming up soon. If the requested disclosure materials are not received by June 26th, the first appearance date, should the Reindeer plea neither guilty and not guilty, and request more time?wisemanleo wrote: ↑May 16th, 2014 1:02 pmMy friend, Reindeer, has an Ontario Driver's License and was driving on Highway 63 in Alberta where he was issued a Court Summons. The Summons has no option to pay, and already has a court appearance date scheduled for June 26th, in Alberta. Reindeer does not live in Alberta.
Speed Limit: 70km/hr
Speed: 126km/hr (for approximate duration of 25 seconds)
Speed limit on Highway 63 frequently changes from 100, 70, 50 and back to 100 in a matter of kilometres.
Options on back of ticket are:
1. Voluntary Payment (not applicable in this case since a court appearance date is already scheduled on the ticket itself)
2. Plead Not Guilty
3. Appear before Justice to make plea
Actions Taken as of May 24th
- Chose Option 2 and mailed back ticket by registered mail to the court house
- Sent Disclosure Request (TicketCombat template) to prosecutor's office
Reindeer says thanks.
Reindeer would like to get free consultation in Ontario, as he lives there. Would a lawyer or paralegal service be best suited for this?
