The Police pulled over a South American immigrant for driving without headlights. The Police learned that the Driver did not possess a valid Florida license, only a license from her native country. The Officer issued the Defendant a citation for Driving without a Valid License and a Summons to appear in Court.
RESULT: The Defendant retained Musca Law to defend the criminal charge against her. The Client feared that her Court appearance would jeopardize her status with immigration resulting in deportation. The Attorney filed a Plea in Absentia on the Client’s behalf. The Plea in Absentia allowed the Client to negotiate a plea in the case without her presence in Court. The Court ruled NO FORMAL FINDING OF GUILT on the charge of Driving without a Valid License and the Client’s immigration status remained in good standing.
