Good ol’Boy system still alive well, rural AZ. How does one get legal help, traffic ticket in kangaroo court?
Question by snowbeardvc: Good ol’Boy system still alive well, rural AZ. How does one get legal help, traffic ticket in kangaroo court?
Am being denied legal counsel representation by the State, on a phoney traffic ticket. Unable to afford to hire an attorney to fight it in the local kangaroo court. Does anyone have any suggestions on where I might get some help? Have sought help from this same court in past and found I was the WRONG religion, so the whole proceedure was a joke on me. So IF you have thoughts that might help me PLEASE pass them this way. This Toonerville Police Dept. has a fine record of selective law enforcement and a lack of solving crime when it affects the poorer side of the community. Everything is ALWAYS “Under investigation” but am still waiting to hear of a solved case. You have heard stories about these sorts of places, they are NOT in the past, but are still alive and well in this day and age. Can really use your help. Sorry I’m not rich enough to hire an attorney on my own, so I would not have to bother you with my problem. Thanks for suggestions or help.
It was aledged speeding…. I was doing 41 in a 40 and cop said I was doing 61….. they do not have radar it was supposed to be a paced clock…. at NO time was I paced I was watching him the whole time in my mirrors… he was accelerating on me the whole time…. watched him for over half mile…. was told that they were NOT seeking Jail time so unable to get representation, unless I pay…. have NO money… it is just a small town tax collection method.
Note to corvette…..
41 was speedo read… actual was probably 39…. as for others yes we are now working together to try to change things. another note I have been denied a speedy trial, State keeps continuing this alledged offense happened on Christmas night…. (Merry Christmas huh)…
Answer by gokart121
what was the ticket for? Are you SURE it’s a bogus ticket, were you speeding, not signaling, etc? Usually, even in Hickville, etc., cops are held to a pretty high standard, there. I’d re-read the ticket and really think on it. Don’t just be biased, make SURE you were doing right. If not, then fess up, and pay the ticket.
I read your addition to the original, if I was you I’d pay the ticket…then MOVE. Or, just avoid that town from now on. Pay it, under protest, then take the whole thing and mail it to the state atty. general, let them deal with it…
