Levy County Driver has License Suspension Invalidated
A Levy County Sheriff’s Office deputy was on patrol in the area of US 27 when he observed a vehicle traveling shout bound in the northbound lane. The deputy caught up with the vehicle and conducted a traffic stop around the area of US 27 and county road 241. The deputy made contact with the driver of the vehicle and could smell an odor of alcohol coming from the driver and that his eyes were bloodshot and watery. At that time the deputy had the driver exit the vehicle and requested that he participate in field sobriety exercise, which the driver refused to participate in. Based on his observation the deputy placed the driver under arrest and transported him to the levy county jail. While at the jail the driver was asked to provide a breath sample, which the driver also refused to provide. The driver received a DUI citation and his license was suspended for refusing to provide a breath sample.
The driver hired Meldon Law. The attorneys at Meldon Law filed an application for a Formal Review Hearing through the Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicle (DHSMV) to challenge the basis of the driver’s license suspension, the license suspension was invalidated on basis of the failure of a material witness to appear. The hearing officer later issued an order setting aside the license suspension.
