You want to know why I ' got off ' as ' easy ' as I did? You want to know what was really funny..
The guy whom ' took off ', hit one of the cop cars ( not badly ) when they cut him off to stop him. They wanted me to ' witness ' it for them.
When I had to see the Judge he asked me ' 140? Do you know how fast you were going? ' I told him ' Sir, My speedo reads 120, I was in the middle of 4th gear, both stages were blowing, I have no reason to believe the Officer whom wrote that ticket would have any reason at all to be untruthful. I just pulled over, why make things worse then what they already were? '.
What was funny was the look on the judges face. He didn't think I was serious at all. Picture a very conservative old Black judge.. Clarence Thomas type.. Biting on his lower lip and his eyes glowing red with the ' wrath of god '/rage looking down on you.. I thought he was going to beat me severely .
The cop that wrote the ticket came forward and spoke on my behalf, gave me a good character reference and the whole story of what happened. I pointed out to the judge whom I was racing.
All he said was ' No ****? Sorry but Im used to everyone saying they are innocent and trying to get over on the system. '
He gave me my punishment, had me verify I understood what he explained to me, signed a bunch of papers, Used a Mastercard to pay the Court and was out the door on my own 2 feet. Lawyer didn't have to say a word on my behalf.
I have one of those ' Cards ' Cops and Sheriffs have.. This one has the Judges info on it. I have his sticker on the windshield of my truck as well.
Its amazing what can happen when we tell the truth for what it is and let the good of others do as it will.
What DID sukk.. I went to the ' Hayfield bash '/meet in Ohio to hang out with ScottyG , Dave01978, Thatguy and others.. and I was bagged on route 11 coming home.. I didn't know it was a 55mph area.. Luckily, I just regained all my privies with no restrictions 2 days prior.
