So I decided to fight the tickets on the defence that I feel as if I could not make a safe stop, and also it was raining that day (road slippery), so I went ahead and made the turn. And of course I did indeed had my insurance card. I went to 50 Hightech road today to plead not guilty and file for a court date. I read online that you have to ask for a speedy trial, however when I went in today, the person in line before asked for speedy trial, but the staff said starting Jan 2017 the early retention request has be removed from the process.... Anyone else filed for court recently encounter this?
Also, I read online there's some form you have to fill out when you ask to plead not guilty and file for court date, and you are suppose to indicate on their that you want the police present...? but when I went today, there was no form available for people to fill out. All they did was ask me which option I want and then told me I will get a notice for court date in 2-5 months time. Is there suppose to be a form to fill out?
I want to ask if anyone can share some advice for me? And did I miss something in the steps? And what should I expect to do next?
Thanks in advance
