Driver Intentionally Drove on Suspended License; Charged with Crime

Officers initiated a traffic stop on a driver for traffic infractions. The driver admitted to authorities that she had awareness of her license being suspended. The police charged the driver with driving on a suspended license with knowledge, a criminal offense. Officers also ticketed the driver for failing to display a driver’s license. RESULT: The defense negotiated the details of the case with the State attorney. The attorney persuaded the state to reduce the charges to driving on a suspended license without knowledge, an infraction. The Court ruled no formal finding of guilt resulting in NO CONVICTION! The defense prevailed again with the ticket also being DISMISSED!
