Attorney Ryan W. McAllister recently represented a client who was charged with Driving on a Suspended License under 75 Pa.C.S.A. 1543(a). Our client had failed to respond to a traffic ticket in another county in Pennsylvania, and, as a result, his license was suspended indefinitely. When our client was pulled over for a minor traffic violation, the officer ran our client’s information and discovered his license was suspended. The officer then issued our client a ticket.
Our client was very concerned because if he was convicted of the 1543(a) offense, PennDOT would have hit him with another whole one (1) year license suspension. Needless to say, our client, who needed his license to commute to work and support his family, could not afford a one (1) year suspension of his operating privileges.
Therefore, at the Berks County District Court hearing, Attorney McAllister requested a hearing before the Judge. After questioning the officer and making a convincing legal argument to the Judge, our client was found “NOT GUILTY” of the citation. Our client was very happy with the outcome of his case.
