Q: I got a ticket for window tint being too dark. Can proof of it being within legal limits still be provided after court?
The court said I had to pay it. However, a reputable business did the tint and when I got it tested by another business, it is indeed legal all the way around the car. How can I provide this to court after I've already had court? It seems asinine (and more like theft) to force someone to pay a ticket for something that turned out to be legal. It's the principle of the matter for me.
A: Unfortunately, if you have already been found guilty, then you are precluded from being able to bring in new evidence that you could have gotten prior to your court date.
A: If you have been found guilty in municipal court and 30 days has not passed, you can appeal to county court and bring witnesses to testify about the legality of the tint.
