Case #: 2016-CF-****
Our client was charged as a Habitual Traffic Offender by the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles and as a result had her license revoked for a period of 5 years. We found that our client had twice previously been cited for Driving While License Suspended Without Knowledge, a civil traffic citation that does not require a court appearance and just be paid. Our client paid each of these citations, was adjudicated guilty, had points assessed, and was ordered to pay a fine. After paying these fines, the Habitual Traffic Offender designation took effect. We filed motions to mitigate her sentences, removing the adjudication of guilt and points from her license in two separate counties where these tickets were received. Both motions were granted by the court, the Habitual Traffic Offender Designation was removed and our client was able to receive her driver's license back within weeks of losing it instead of 5 years later.
