Alex Watts : Hello my name is Alex and I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return.
Alex Watts : It is for the prosecution to prove the case against you beyond reasonable doubt. You need to set out in writing all the issues that you raise and the nature of your defence for when you go to court for the first hearing. Then give the list of issues to the prosecutor and when the file gets made up they will consider whether or not to adduce expert evidence.
Alex Watts : I have read your previous exchanges and I see you have been waiting some time for an answer.
Alex Watts : You too could adduce expert evidence but you must inform the court beforehand. You can not just say here you go I say x,y,z you need to have evidence of someone attending court.
Alex Watts : Can I clarify anything for you about your question today? If not, can I invite you to rate my service which I hope has been excellent. If you need more help then please click reply. Thanks - Alex
Alex Watts : But the issue here seems to be the handling of the device and as such the prosecution would have to show it was handled correctly.
JACUSTOMER-hgsk5wqy- : Hi Alex and thank you for your kind reply, is this something you could represent me on? Also there is a bit more to it that I would be happy to send you the details of the case to look into it further......?
JACUSTOMER-hgsk5wqy- : One main issue for me is the inaccuracies of what the officer has said, and the nature of things that have happend, I will make them aware of the recording, and I will make them aware I wish to rely upon it to show that the officer has said some strange things that don't add up, I.e "I pulled that car because it was a grey golf doing 30" !! In a 30 zone, also out of the other vehicles he had pulled me in, add that to the fact he now says in his "signed witness statement" that the speed was 2Mph more than the alleged original offence on the day, so does the officer have difficulties from time to time to accurately look at numbers? As surly he has written down what it was on the day- remember it's his signed witness statement!
JACUSTOMER-hgsk5wqy- : so the actual offence they wish to take me to court for most definitely does not tally up with the alleged offence on the day and I have a producer which states the Mph on the day, and recorded evidence. The officer says some bizzare things and accuses me of calling him a liar, when I actually tell him "I am NOT calling you a liar" he replies "you must be because your contesting this ticket!" "I reiterate to him I am not and I am just contending the alleged speed due to an inaccuracy.
JACUSTOMER-hgsk5wqy- : there are many things in this case that we'll go against the officer
JACUSTOMER-hgsk5wqy- : 576yrds to pinpoint a lazer at the press of a trigger on a moving object that is less that a meter long at the front not to mention no flat reflective survice for him to pinpoint as the bike is sharp like a V on the front end.
JACUSTOMER-hgsk5wqy- : I am SO angry and disappointed to the point I have not gone out on the Motor Bike since and have sold it!!! A bike I planned to keep for years as I bought it brand new only a few months ago, but I really don't want this to happen ever again as I was not speeding so to be told I was is a shock and not true!.
Alex Watts : Sadly it is against site rules to represent you as it is against site rules. I would get into trouble!
Alex Watts : The variation is not a massive issue so do not be confused about that. It will all be down to how the equipment was used.
Alex Watts : does thus answer your question?
JACUSTOMER-hgsk5wqy- : But he is saying it was doing 2mph more now than I was, to me that's a massive issue because the officer is not consistent/honest about the alleged offence.
JACUSTOMER-hgsk5wqy- : surly on a technical basis this should be thrown out of court because the alleged offence isn't even the correct one, so how on earth could the judge side with the officer.
JACUSTOMER-hgsk5wqy- : he has signed his statement, if he can't accurately work with numbers then surly there is no case to answer as the alleged offence is different to the offence back then
JACUSTOMER-hgsk5wqy- : not to mention the lies the officer says
JACUSTOMER-hgsk5wqy- : Even in my right of reply he is wrong in what I actually said, and have exacerbated my comments to look worse
JACUSTOMER-hgsk5wqy- : why does this not have any bearing on the case
Alex Watts : But it's not about the speed, it's about how he used the device. You can raise it but it will not win or lose just on that point.
Alex Watts : i don't want you to be confused and lose focus of the real issue.
Alex Watts : that point is very minor in the scheme of things.
