Charges were dismissed today by the State Attorney in case number A05KUPP. The defendant was driving while on a suspended license for DUI (Driving Under the Influence). Prior to retaining Mr. Fernandez, the State was offering an adjudication and 10 days in Dade County Jail. Mr. Fernandez filed a Motion to Suppress the Stop and at the hearing for the Motion, the charges were dropped.
The charge of Driving While License Suspended can happen to anyone. It can be charged as Knowingly (meaning he knew or should have known his license was suspended) or Unknowingly (meaning he did not know his license was suspended.) In either event, the charges are categorized as a misdemeanor criminal offense. If you or someone your know was arrested for DWLS contact that Mr. Fernandez immediately for a free consultation.
