Plea deals for faulty headlamps deny justice for victims
BROOMFIELD, Colo. -- Fictitious traffic tickets have been generating big money for Broomfield City Court this past year. About one-fifth of all moving violations were pleaded out to the same charge: Faulty headlamp. According to court records, prosecutors allowed 840 drivers to plead guilty to faulty headlamps, even though the Broomfield Police Department cited zero drivers for having a broken headlight.
