DUI & Criminal Division

Our client holds a Class A Commercial Driver’s License. While traveling on I-75, he stopped at a weigh station. While going through inspection, the FHP Trooper informed him that his license was suspended for financial responsibility (insurance), and cited our client for criminally driving while license suspended with knowledge. Our client was adamant that he was unaware of any problems and fixed his license. Even with a valid driver’s license and no prior criminal history, the State Attorney wanted a conviction for a criminal charge. In reviewing our client’s discovery packet from the State, his driver’s license record failed to show he was properly given notice of his suspension at the time the ticket was issued. We made the decision to push the case forward to trial and reject the State’s offer. At the time the Judge asked the State if they were prepared to proceed to trial, the State dismissed all charges against our client.
