Congratulations. I'll avoid a long post... but the number of times I have personal knowledge of the cops/DA just making up the evidence, or ignoring obvious defects in the evidence, is incredible. This happens in murder trials, arson trials, etc. It's scary if you know someone with the real story. There are some honest cops out there - I know some - but I think they are in the minority. >CAUTION: During my "research" of Georgia speeding >laws I learnt The key fact is that these laws *vary by state*.
