Last Tuesday I had a case I was really looking forward to on the Eastern Shore. I had another relatively new officer, this one a Maryland State Trooper, and a video. Interesting that they have videos in the cars everywhere but the Baltimore metropolitan area. My eye was still repairing itself and it was a beautiful to cross the Bay Bridge. Now this case had some history. It was postponed the first time because I did not "check in" and therefore the State did not know to tell the police to come to court. The prosecutor was incredibly pissed at me and when he went to look for the officer he told me I could have my trial the NEXT TIME I came over there. When they went to look for the police, they found out that one was on his honeymoon. I argued that if he eloped the night before he had a good reason for not notifying the court, but otherwise the postponement should be denied. The postponement was granted.
