Hi,Yes, but here's the thing: To be convicted you have to be proved guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. The clash of details in the police reports can possibly make a judge or jury see doubt at trial. So why would you want to suppress them? The only way a jury sees that they conflict is if they come in at your trial.
