The Defendant was driving with his father on Florida’s Turnpike when he fell ill with food poisoning. The Defendant’s father, who did not have a valid driver’s license due to immigration complications, decided to drive so he could get his son safely home. A Trooper with the Florida Highway Patrol pulled the father over for speeding. The trooper not only wrote a criminal citation to the father for No Valid Driver’s License, but the trooper also wrote the son a criminal citation for Allowing an Unauthorized Person to Drive, even though he was laying in the back ill. The Firm’s Treasure Coast Attorney immediately discussed the case with the prosecutor and explained the surrounding circumstances. The prosecutor dropped all charges.
