1. If neither policeman witnessed what happened, then neither should be allowed to testify. If wither one attempts to take the witness stand, you must stand up and respectfully ***** ***** following.
"Your Honor, with all due respect, neither of these police officers witnessed or heard anything. So, I respectfully ***** ***** tis Court that any testimony
they give will be completely hearsay and should not be permitted."
2. If the other individual does not appear, then when your case is called, you should say the following,
"Your Honor, my name is __________ and I was given a ticket for _____ to which I am entering my plea of "Not Guilty". And since Mr. So and so has failed to appear, the police officers who later arrived at the scene, neither heard, nor saw anything. Therefore, their testimony would be pure hearsay and should not be permitted, nor considered in deciding my guilt or innocence".
If, by some remote and unknown reason the Judge allows the first police officer to testify, do the following,
A. "Your Honor, I would like to renew my objection to permitting either police officer to testify on the grounds they were not present and anything they might testify to, even under Oath, is hearsay;
B. Therefore, testimony from either officer should not be permitted since they saw and heard nothing, their testimony would be pure hearsay and should not be permitted".
If the other person does not show up, and you voice your objection to any testimony from the police officers, you will then ask the Judge to dismiss the ticket and find you "Not Guilty",
"Your Honor, Mr. _____ did not have enough respect for the Court to even appear and since neither of the police officers saw or heard anything, so their testimony would be pure hearsay, I respectfully ***** ***** Court to dismiss the ticket and find me, "Not Guilty". Thank you,
