If you go to court the police paperwork will fit the crime/case..honesty does not take a part in court proceedings, in fact just the opposite, the whole business is all about which side can convince the judge, who wasn't there, that they are more believable..Unless you have a lawyer who can lie better than the police you will just lose and have to pay more court costs and maybe even a bigger fine...It doesn't really matter whether you were guilty or not, you were in the wrong place at the wrong time..

Anyway, you were guilty..My advice..mark it down to experience and try to spot them first next time..
