A day in court

My daughter had to go to court today on the speeding ticket she was given a few weeks ago. The judge reduced the charge but didn't dismiss the ticket. FIVE other people had been given a ticket on the same street by the same officer. It seems that they were also sited for speeding. When my daughter was given her ticket the officer said she was going 40..She admitted she was but the speed sign said 35. The cop said it was 25. In each of the other cases the people had the same thing happen. All the judge ask the officer was his radar gun calibrated. He said yes. End of story. It just seems fishy to me that everyone ticketed had the same story, and yet the judge sided with the cop. I personally think he was just trying to get his quota of tickets for the month. This is how cops get a bad name. I know they work hard, but I also know there are bad cops out there. I tend to think this man might be one of them. If she had been the only one who was fighting the ticket I wouldn't open my mouth, but FIVE people...All I can say is hmmmmmm
Anyway what this means for the daughter is she will lose her license. We are not sure yet. The letter will come from DMV. In the mean time no one is happy. The apartment complex is still jerking us around about our own unit. MAYBE we will hear something today. They CLAIM they can get us in, they just don't know how to fix the paper work so that it reads correctly in case the fair housing people check in on them. It sounds to me like they need to calibrate there office staff. Maybe they are in cahoots with the cop..Sounds dirty to me..

That doesn't sound fair. Hope she doesn't lose the licence for too long ... what a bummer.
Take care, Meow
