CLIENT CAUSED ACCIDENT WITH SUSPENDED LICENSE

Client was accused of turning left into oncoming traffic, causing an accident with injuries – and was issued a citation as such. The police on scene determined that the clients driver’s license was suspended, and noted that the client had a prior Driving While License Suspended charge in 2009. The client was arrested and charged with Driving While License Suspended (with Knowledge). The initial plea offer from the State called for 10 days jail. We rejected the offer and prepared the case for trial. Several defenses were developed including the use of the accident report privilege, a corpus delicti challenge, speedy trial, and a challenge as to whether the State could prove knowledge.
