Photo ticket - witness, but take the 5th for the questions I don't like?

San Francisco, CA |

Greetings,

The wrong person has been accused in a photo ticket violation. I had the car for that day, so the accused could not have committed the crime.

If I witness that the accused could not have committed the crime, because I had the car for the day (I drive it to work), can I take the 5th on the next question: Is that you in the picture?

Court: Superior Court of San Francisco, Traffic Division.

Here's the problem...you will be in court and they will have a picture of you, they don't need your confession. I'd suggest you go a different route. You can't just tstify to some questions and not others.

First of all, if it wasn't your car, why are you going to court? Here is a website with a ton of information:

I'm not affiliated with them at all and don't endorse, just a lot of my clients have found good information there.

Good luck with your situation.
