Default Case Dismissed

Camera Fraud Article: Case Dismissed


Mecum (left) was the target of a DPS show trial/arrest

Mecum (left) was the target of a DPS show trial/arrest


From the we-told-you-so department:




The reckless driving case against the executive director of the Arizona Republican Party has been dismissed.


In May, Brett Mecum was arrested by state police at his office in GOP Headquarters for allegedly driving 109 mph in a posted 65 mph zone on Loop 101. A judge dropped the charges against Mecum this week with prejudice, which means the state can’t re-file the charges.


Mecum reportedly ignored the speed camera ticket he received in the mail, and DPS took the step of arresting him at work. The case was dismissed by Judge John Keegan with Arrowhead District Court, who has dismissed every speed camera ticket in his court.


Keegan had earlier issued an order that the state’s speed camera system is unconstitutional.á The judge has dropped over 400 speed camera charges.


CameraFRAUD has learned that legal documents involved with this case (Judge’s ruling?) may make a specific claim that this was a politically-motivated move by the Department of Public Safety against Mecum. We are working to obtain the files and will follow up when we have more information.
