Client Avoids Departmental Hearing and 5 Points

by | Feb 24, 2012 | Criminal Law |

attarney Ryan W. McAllister recently represented a client who was charged with driving 31 miles per hour over the posted speed limit, which is a summary offense under 75 Pa.C.S.A. 3362. A conviction of this offense would have given our client five (5) points on his driving record, and, based on our client’s current situation, would have triggered a PennDOT Departmental Hearing; additionally, he would have very likely received some sort of license suspension from PennDOT.

At the hearing, attarney McAllister negotiated with the police officer to reduce the citation. attarney McAllister explained our client’s situation, and he was able to successfuly convince the police officer to give our client a “one-time” break. The citation was reduced to driving 5 miles per hour over the posted speed limit, an offense which carries no points.

Needless to say, our client was very happy that he didn’t get any additional points on his driving record. Additionally, he avoided the possibility of a license suspension.
