DUI & Criminal Division

The Defendant was using his girlfriend as a driver for their business. While traveling together in separate vehicles, law enforcement stopped the girlfriend’s vehicle (registered to the Defendant) for an unrelated traffic offense. The Defendant and his girlfriend were charged with “Permitting unauthorized Driver to Drive” and “Driving while License Suspended with Knowledge” respectively. The attorney negotiated vigorously with the State Attorney’s Office and challenged the knowledge requirement of the alleged crime. Eventually the prosecutor relented and dropped all criminal charges against the Defendant.
