I'm fighting a parking ticket for parking the wrong way on a 2-way street in front of my OWN house. In my "hearing", I ask the hearing officer to confront my accuser. She said I had to make the "request" BEFORE the hearing. Anyway she made it clear I could NOT get a jury trial for a non-moving violation and in this hearing I could NOT confront my accuser though she would call the officer for further testimony from him. My defense is the confused officer ticketed my car when he should have nailed my room-mate. What do I need to do to get a real trial w/ a real jury? And another person who fought his Dallas parking ticket said they would not give him a jury trial either though they dismissed his ticket when he showed up for the appeal.
