Marion County Driving While License Suspended Charge Dropped

DUI and Criminal Defense

A Marion County Sheriff’s deputy observed a 2002 red Volkswagen at the 14500 block of SE 90th Terrace and conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle for a faulty headlight. The deputy observed that the driver of the vehicle matched the description of the owner and conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle. The deputy spoke with the driver and explained the basis of the stop and requested his driver’s license. The driver admitted that he did not have a valid driver’s license and that it was suspended.

The deputy ran a computer check, which confirmed that the driver’s license was suspended and placed the driver under arrest for driving while license suspended.

The driver hired Meldon Law. The attorneys at Meldon reviewed the defendant’s driver’s license record, which showed the basis of the current suspension as well as the uniform traffic citation. After reviewing the discovery and speaking with the prosecutor, the attorney negotiated a resolution that resulted in the prosecutor dropping the charge.
