...and was told that the officer couldn't make it because he was occupied with "official business". I thought this was a good thing because the citation would be dismissed, but then the judge went on to say that the courts are very clear about this and that it would be rescheduled.
I didn't bother asking about it being dismissed because I figured the judge would be correct, seeing as how this is what he does every day.
Did anyone know that? I always thought if the officer couldn't make it, you got off clean.
