An Ocala Police Department Officer was conducting security in downtown when he observed a red Toyota Corolla run a stop sign on SW 10th St and then turn south on SE Magnolia Extension. The officer conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle, made contact with the driver, and asked for his license.
The officer ran the driver’s license and found that the license was suspended. The officer also noted that there was also two prior driving while license suspended charges as well. The officer then placed the driver under arrest for Driving while license suspended and transported him to the Marion County Jail.
The driver hired Meldon Law. The attorney’s at Meldon Law reviewed the driver’s license history and noticed that one of the alleged priors was a civil driving while license suspended, thus the driver should not have been charged with Felony Driving while License Suspended. The Attorney at Meldon Law spoke with the prosecutor about the case and lack of requisite priors. Ultimately, the case was dismissed by the state.
