Gainesville Driver has Felony Charge Dropped
An Alachua County Sheriff’s Office deputy observed a female from across the street that he knew did not have a valid driver’s license. The deputy spoke with the female, who stated she knew her license was suspended but that she had fixed it. The deputy ran the tag on her vehicle and instructed the driver not to leave. The deputy was able to confirm that her license was not valid, and when he went inform the driver, she put her vehicle in drive and sped off. Due to the location of his patrol vehicle, the deputy was not able to purse the driver.
The defendant hired Meldon Law. The attorneys at Meldon reviewed the arrest report and met with the client, gathering the full facts of the incident. The attorney then spoke with the prosecutor, providing the full story and mitigating evidence. The attorney successfully negotiated a Pre-Trial Intervention agreement (PTI) which ultimately led to the felony charge being dropped.
