Ocala Driver Suspended License Charge Dropped

DUI and Criminal Defense

A Marion County Sheriff’s deputy observed a 2008 Toyota pickup at the intersection of West Highway 40 and Northwest 110th Avenue and ran a record check that showed that the owner had a suspended license. The deputy observed that the driver of the vehicle matched the description of the owner and conducted a traffic stop. The deputy spoke with the driver of the vehicle who stated that he had received a letter that his driver’s license would be suspended if not taken care of, and the driver further stated that he thought he took care of it. The driver was placed under arrest for driving while license suspended.

The driver hired Meldon Law. The attorneys at Meldon reviewed the driver’s license record of the defendant, 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 charge being dropped, upon proof that the license was currently valid.
