Case #: 20XXXXT1XX45 NO CONVICTION AS CHARGED
The defendant was riding as a passenger in a truck carrying hazardous material. The driver, who possessed a valid driver license with the appropriate class to haul such material, became extremely ill. Perhaps choosing the better of two evils, the driver instructed our client to drive the truck instead of leaving the hazardous material on the side of the road in a perilous position. Soon after taking the wheel, our client was pulled over by a Florida Department of Transportation Officer and cited with being in violation of his driver license class. Although our client was in technical violation of the statute, the Firm’s Treasure Coast Attorney was able to persuade the prosecutor to dismiss all charges.
