Before the trial actually starts and witnesses are called, i.e., as soon as your case is called before the judge and all parties are present in front of the judge but before the other side calls the officer or anyone else to the stand. The judge may just take in under consideration until the after the trial but that's his choice to make. So, if he denies your motion right off of the bat, then maybe ask for reconsideration after the trial. You miss 100% of the shots you don't take.For those in the "know"....when do you motion to dismiss? Is it after the prosecution tells their side of the story or just right off the bat or ?
