You can request it via subpoena but it's unlikely you'll get anything. Newer Washoe County Sherriff patrol vehicls are no longer equiped with video due to costs. I can only assume Reno and Sparks are the same away. Even if they are equipped they would only be activated when the overheads are on. So unless your alleged crime happened while the overheads were actived AND the vehicle had a recording device... your screwed and it's your word against the officers.
I just went through this by getting my first ticket in 10+ years. I was travling North and made a right (east) turn on a green and an oncoming car (southbound) traffic turned left (east) and almost hit my rear quaterpanel. We both were turning onto a single lane road so I had the right of way. The oncoming vehicle turning left across traffic should have given the right of way. When this incident happened a WCSD was traveling West on the road we turned on. He turned around and got behind the other vehicle. Turned on hs overheads went passed the other vehicle, pulled me over and cited me.
I decided to fight the citation because I was in the right and had not violated the law I was cited for.
now play this tune in your head.... I fought the law and the law won.
When I went to court I was 100% prepared, or at least I thought I was. I questioned the officer on the stand and kicked his ass! After I had proved that in fact I had not violated the law I was cited for and requested an immediate ruling of not guilty the DA stood up and requested that the charge be amended to another law. Note that this is essentially the end of the trial. Motion granted.
The judge advised me that I could request a continuance. I asked and was granted a moment to familerize myself with the amended charge but did not ask for a continuance. I read the law really quick and noted a couple things I could use for my defense. I then proceeded to Kick the DA's ass and prove my self innocent of this ammended charge. I again asked the Judge to find an immediate ruling of not guilty. The DA stood up again and requested to re-amend the charge. Motion granted.
The judge again advisd me that I could request a continuance. I took another moment to familerize myself with this re-amended charge. I should have taken the continuance and studied the law in depth. It came down to the officers 30 years of experiance versus my 25 years of no accident driving experience. Even though I raised various issues concerning the Deputies memory and recollection the judge still ruled in his favor.
Just so you know. I did a couple things wrong. I got cocky. I didn't know the DA could change the charge (twice) after the trial started let alone at the end of it and I didn't ask for a continuance. A continuance alone would have got me off simply due to the time of the trial. Under Nevada state law they have 60 days to give you a fair trial after your arrianment. If I would have asked for a continuance but insisted my rights to a speedy trial remain intact they would have had to drop the charges or maybe re-file. Not sure how that works. Had I studied the law for more than 30 seconds during trial I would have found the way through it and raised reasonable doubt again. Either way would have been fine with me.
60 dollar fine and 70 bucks in admin fees for a total of 130.00 smackers. It was well worth it though since I cost the county upwards of a grand just to put on the trial and I learned how the process works a little more. I gotta tell you, no matter how much you want it to be "innocent until proven guilty beyond a resonable doubt", you are "Guilty until proven innocent beyond any doubt".
