attarney Ryan W. McAllister recently represented a client in the Berks County Courts who was charged with Driving on a Suspended License under Section 1543(a) of the Pennsylvania Vehicle Code. Since our client had several prior convictions of the same exact charge, he was facing a mandatory thirty (30) days in Berks County Prison, with a maximum of six (6) months. Our client had never been convicted of any misdemeanor or felony offenses, and he was a employed full-time in the community; quite simply, our client just had a semi-poor driving record.
attarney McAllister was hired with one goal in mind: keep our client out of jail. A jail sentence would have resulted in our client losing his job, which he had held for over two (2) years. Therefore, attarney McAllister advised his client to plead “not guilty” and to fight the charges at Berks County District Court. At the hearing, attarney McAllister negotiated with the police officer who issued the traffic citation and explained the difficult circumstances that our client was facing. In the end, attarney McAllister was able to successfuly resolve the case in a way that kept our client out of prison.
In the end, our client was extremely happy since he didn’t have to spend any time in jail. More importantly, however, is that our client was able to keep his job.
