So my son had a DUI, goes to court with his attorney, court gets postponed because the arresting officer didn't show up (sick), next court date many weeks later - officer wasn't there again - this time the court indicates they (whoever they are) failed to notify the officer of the court date, so rescheduled again.... eventually son is found guilty (appropriately)but the penalty starts after the 3rd court date about 9 months after initial date. I've heard others experience similar issue... officers don't show up, court postpones, officers not notified, court postponed. Son showed up all three times & lost wages while missing work. There must be a better process... but I'd rather not be tried in any other country!
