Police cited a driver for not wearing his glasses, a violation of his driver’s license restriction. The Defendant mistakenly thought the citation was a civil ticket and not a criminal infraction. The Driver missed the scheduled arraignment on the citation and the Court issued a bench warrant.
RESULT: The Defense Attorney filed a Motion to Set Aside Bench Warrant and Bond Entreasure. The Court granted the Defense’s Motion at a hearing and set aside the warrant for the Client’s arrest. The Defense successfully challenged the Client’s criminal citation and the Court ruledNO FORMAL FINDING OF GUILT. The Client is now eligible to have his record expunged.
