I requested disclosure once, months in advance to a BS dangerous driving ticket, where no one was injured & there was no accident (tire chirped - pre-stunting/ racing law). I was laughed at by both the prosecutor & the judge. them both saying: this is isn't a criminal trial. I replied that there was a criminal component to this charge & that i could potentially do 6 months according to the statute & I took it seriously.. recieved disclosure with chicken scratch hand writtting that Was the Next Court Date..like not official notice.. was found guilty during my non appearance.. so i hired a lawyer & poof appealed - Dismissed due to lack of evidence
once for my brothers ticket the Cop wasn't even present, which is usually a dissmisal- nope you can wait around for 4+ hours while this cop gets back from an officer funeral which he recieves overtime or special pay for. while we both lose out on a days work. They Really Want your Money
all of our 'judges' are appointed some don't even have law back rounds.
Another thing the OP could try to delay the court date is to request a translator. That would take another couple of months. Or provide proof that you will be out of town during the court date and you will not be able to attend.
I have missed my court date once and got convicted by not appearing. That's not justice at all. Sounds like shxt that happen in some third world Communist countries. The rules are made by the same corrupted officials who take our money away.
I then argued with the Justice (my
) of Peace that there was no information provided to me in any shape or form that I had to re-schedule at least 5 days in advance. He looked kind of startled but I looked straight into his eyes and repeated myself. At the end he allowed me to appeal the ruling.
But I was kind of lucky because I later found out the Toronto Court Services website did state how late can you re-schedule a court date but my bluff did work and that SOB folded his cards.
If you were knowledgeable and sound confident, you can use the system to beat the system.
