I attended a traffic hearing on an exceeding the speed limit citation (FL). During the hearing, two officers gave their testimony, which is the only evidence for the prosecution. The prosecutor was not present at the trial. My cross-examination took "too much time" for the judge, and he stopped me before I was complete. He told me I could submit my testimony, additional evidence, and closing statements by written document within 10 days, and he would make his judgment.
Upon reviewing the events in court, I realized that the officers were never sworn in and gave unsworn testimony. I will, of course, include this in my written document to the judge (along with my other points). But what are the possible legal outcomes? Obviously the judge could find the testimony inadmissible, and rule for dismissal. However, could he rule for a mistrial, and require a new hearing? Or could he obtain a sworn affidavit from the officers stating that the testimony they presented over one week earlier was "the truth, the whole..."? Could he even just accept the unsworn testimony?
Thank you very much
