I do understand. The State Attorney does have to act in good faith and should not place a witness on the stand, who they know if not telling the truth. In a situation like the one you stated above, this will best be handled at trial
, whereby you or your attorney, attack the credibility of the officer and show that he is lying and not a credible witness. As such, you will want to show that nothing the officer testifies to is the truth and if he is lying about this, he is lying about other things. Of course, the State may still proceed and allow the officer to explain the contradiction.Something to be aware of, is that the State will still have to have the victim testify at trial and identify you as the alleged robbery. The issue with the tag may only be an issue and basis for suppression, if it was the reason that the vehicle was stopped. It is clear that someone is lying but it may not result in the Judge dismissing the case, since it is up to the jury to decide, of who they want to believe. The State may actual attack their own witness and try to get them to explain why the story was changed and if they are being pressured or influenced in any way.
