I appreciate his honesty, but I feel pretty uncomfortable about this. Is it true that if an officer retires, that all his speeding ticket cases get dropped? Sounds a little bizarre to me.
If anyone has experience with this, please let me know.
Same exact thing happend to me about a month or two ago, by ay chance was he a kind of heavy set black guy? he got me in a loaner car right where the speed limit changes from 55 to 35 around a bend. was extremely nice and told me the same thing he told you, that he would be retiring shortly and that i should plead not guilty, and that they would give me a Jan 13 court date and that by time he would be gone. sure enough i got the paper in the mail for a Jan 13 court date, so we'll have to see what happens then. good luck hope we didnt get scammed!
