Case #: 20XXXXFXXX90 NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
The Defendant was charged with Fleeing & Eluding a law enforcement officer. A felony conviction on such a charge would carry a mandatory one year license suspension along with all the negative consequences of being a convicted felon. The police alleged that the defendant after being directed to pull over yelled obscenities at the police and then recklessly drove off almost hitting pedestrians. The firm argued that this did not make sense as the defendant was stopped by the same officer almost 20 minutes ago for the same non-moving violation of having his music too loud. The State refused to drop the charges and the Firm set the case for a jury trial. On the day of the jury trial, the state dropped the Felony Fleeing and Eluding.
