Case #: 192**48
Police officer testified he pulled a car over for speeding and issued a criminal citation to the driver for not having a drivers license. Police officer further testified he then asked our client (the passenger) whether she knew the driver did not have a drivers license and whether she let him drive anyway. According to the police officer our client stated that she did know and that she did let him drive. Police officer then issued a criminal citation to our client for allowing an unauthorized person to drive. At the suppression hearing, Ticket Clinic attorneys argued that our client was not free to leave and basically in custody when she was questioned by the police officer which required the police officer to have read our client her Miranda rights. Since he didn't, and her statements were the only evidence against her, the State of Florida had no case. The Court agreed and the charge was dismissed.
