As a Florida criminal defense attorney, I would suggest that this is a great issue for any courtroom presentation, including any hearings or even a trial. If you have a key witness for the state testifying that the police officer is lying about this issue, then you can easily make the argument that the officer cannot be trusted about anything.


To do this, you would need to have the witness testify in court according to how she testified in the deposition. Once that testimony is in evidence, you can then argue that 1) it is clear that the officer lied about this issue and, as such, 2) he cannot be believed as to anything else that may be in dispute.
