Clients 40 Day Jail Time for Driving On A Suspended License (Out of State Resident) Reduced to 15 Day Roadside Work Crew
Driving on a Suspended License – Out of State Resident
40 Days Jail Time Reduced to 15 Work Crew Days
The last time my client had a public defender in Marin County, California (2001) for driving on a suspended license for failing to pay his fines he was ordered by the court to serve 40 days in the county jail! Well since 2001 my client still had not received his California Drivers License and was driving in California when he was pulled over by the California Highway Patrol. Fearful of being remanded my client did not want to set foot in court. Since my client was now living in Washington State where he owned and operated his own business it would cause him insurmountable financial hardship if he had to serve any jail time in California. After multiple court appearances and motions the court permitted my client to serve his 15 day sentence on a roadside work crew in Clark's County. Washington. Additionally, my client was given 6 months to fit the 15 days into his work schedule and to show proof of completion to the court.
