Unfortunatly laws are usually seen as black and white... you either violated it or you didn't (assuming that it is a law that pertains to this situation). It'll be up to the judge and your explanation to get the violation reduced/eliminated. Might do yourself a favor though and at least see if you can dig up the pertanent info regarding lane changes close to intersections so you can be prepaired for your trial date.
