A Gainesville Police Department officer stopped a vehicle for failing to obey a stop sign and the driver produced a driver’s license that had expired in 2007. The driver stated she was unaware that the license had expired. The driver was issued a citation and this type of violation requires a court appearance. The driver was from Venezuela and was in the process of moving back to Venezuela as her work visa had expired.
The driver retained Meldon Law and we were able to negotiate an out-of-court agreement with the State Attorney’s office. In exchange for satisfying certain agreed upon charitable donations the state dropped all charges against the driver and the case was closed.
