Got pulled over and arrested for driving with suspended licence. I was unaware of suspension and let the officer know. He wrote on ticket DWSL knowingly. Now i have court tomorrow.
You have court on a Sunday?
The simple answer is that you should do what you should have done the moment that you got the ticket... hire a lawyer.
There is no internet course on "How can I prove the officer lied on the ticket, 101".
Look, you are free to do what you want but you have been charged with a criminal offense which can (and likely will) effect you for the rest of your life so I urge you not to represent yourself.
There is a solid reason for Abe Lincoln's age old quote that "he who represents himself has a fool for a client".
Please do not be that fool.
My advise is firm: Hire a lawyer.
Wishing you good judgment and hoping that I have been helpful in answering your question.
First, second and third: No attorney-client relationship exists by virtue of any Q&A with Michael A. Haber, Esq. on Avvo. Fourth: Anything that you post on Avvo (or on similar sites) or on any social media is by its nature public. It is essentially an admission / confession and can be introduced into evidence as a statement against your interest in a subsequent legal proceeding. Once posted you lose any reasonable expectation of privacy, so, as this is an open forum (with no privilege attached), please be extra careful when considering what to post online (forewarned is forearmed.)
I agree 100% with Mr. Haber. Lawyers go to school for years to practice law. Learning how to prove your case cannot be done over the period of a weekend.
The state will enter a traffic printout that may show that you received notice of your license being suspended. You should consider hiring an attorney and fixing your license if you can.
