STATE v. TM

The Result

Charge reduced, HTO avoided

Client charged with one count of Driving While License Suspended with knowledge in Pasco County and one count of Driving While License Suspended with knowledge in Hernando County the very next day.  Due to Client having previous conviction for Driving While License Suspended with knowledge, convictions on the subsequent cases we handled would result in Client being classified as a Habitual Traffic Offender and losing his license for 5 years, without an opportunity for a restricted license for a year from the suspension date.  JEFF RICH was able to negotiate both charges from Driving While License Suspended to No Valid Driver’s License, thus avoiding any type of license suspension.  Client paid only court costs on both cases and was not formally convicted in either case.
