i appeared in hennepin county district court for a traffic ticket of failure to obey a stop sign. i had a court trial and presented a witness and other evidence to show the officer was wrong. the judge made comments to the effect "it is doubtful the officer could see if the truck made a complete stop from being behind the truck and a block and a hlf away, but his testimony was credible so he was going to find me guilty. i visited the scene after hearing what the officer claimed and found that what he stated was imposible to be true. (the block before the alleged violation has a downward slope and a vehicle cannot be seen by a car that is trailing it.) in light of this newly found fact, is there a way to ask to have this matter heard again or at least this new evidence be presented to the court without having to go to an appeal process??
