Yes you can; you were not wearing the seat belt in the fashion that was indtended.

Yes. Even if you were wearing it, if the cop could not SEE it then he/she will likely testify they saw you driving without a seat belt and unless you have video or pictures of the event as it took place, you will lose.

Wish I had better news but good luck.

...and the other advice is accurate too.
