The issue here is (I think it's the issue) do you lie to a judge because he obviously wants you to?
INTJ. If guilty then tell the truth and give the judge a stern lecture on upholding the law last day or not. AND should he find you not guilty explain to him how you will just be forced to punish/fine yourself.

heh heh heh - if he doesn't die laughing just remember when you bail yourself out - how you stuck to your principles. Truthful answers to 'does this dress make me look fat' means I got married for first time at 70. Hiring a lawyer to do the talking is another option.

At the time I was very frightened...especially in view of the late hour and underpopulated area to which we went.

I would have plead not guilty. But that's because what the judge was doing was unacceptable. So, in Rome you do what the Romans do. If the judge were doing his job correctly, I would have plead guilty, paid the money and gone on with life.

I think about the officer that was doing his job correctly and issuing tickets. That's a slap in the face to him, also.

I know the system is not fair, but I still try to keep my little corner of the world even steven.
