DUI & Criminal Division

A Stuart Police Officer initiated a traffic stop on the defendant. The officer arrested the defendant for failing to register a trailer that he was towing. After hiring The Ticket Clinic, the Firm’s Treasure Coast Attorney researched the facts and determined the apparatus towed by the defendant was actually considered a “tow dolly” and not a “trailer” as defined by Florida Law. Unlike a trailer, a tow dolly is not required to be registered in the State of Florida; therefore, the arrest was not valid. The Prosecution dropped all charges based on this research.
