Attorney Ryan W. McAllister recently represented a client in Berks County District Court who was facing jail time for driving on a suspended license under 75 Pa.C.S.A. 1543(a). Our client was facing a maximum of six (6) months in jail on this offense. He was a working full-time to help support his wife and kids. Any type of jail sentence would have resulted in a loss of his job; needless to say, this would have had severe negative consequences for his family.
Attorney McAllister discussed defense strategies with our client, and he was prepared to present a strong defense to the Judge on the day of the trial. Attorney McAllister met with the officer prior the hearing, and, based on negotiations, was able to work out an agreement with the officer to avoid any type of jail sentence.
Our client was very happy with the outcome of the case since he ended up not having to do any jail time. As a result, our client was able to keep his job and continue to support his family.
