My current lawyer got a motion to suppress the video at the police station & there was no video unit installed on the cop car. I contested my license revocation via a phone trial with the DOT & the judge ruled in my favor stating that I did request a lawyer & the cop didnt give me one as he was sposed to per 804.20.
