I've heard some horror stories about NJ cawps, especially the small depts.
All I can suggest is for her to turn up, tell the truth...especially any conversations about reducing the charge to something she wasnt guilty of to begin with. But with these small towns.....
Yeah, the reducing the charge stuff, that sounds really shady to me. It's one thing a cop deciding to let you off, or even fudging the numbers (reducing 68 mph to 58 mph). But writing you up as guilty for an offense you are not guilty of, even if it is simply intended to reduce your fine, man that's lying on the official record, a potentially career-ending offense. I can't imagine a cawp with half a brain suggesting it unless he had no choice. But maybe I don't know.
