Attorney Ryan W. McAllister recently represented a young man who was charged with 75 Pa.C.S.A. 1543(a), Driving on a Suspended License. Our client had several prior convictions under this offense, and, as a result, he was facing mandatory jail time. In this case, our client had his license suspended as a juvenile, and he had repeatedly gotten into trouble with the authorities, which resulted in additional license suspensions. This all occurred well before our client was 18 years old. Now, our client was in his twenties, and he was gainfully employed, earning money and providing for his girlfriend and her young daughter. He was still, however, paying the price for his misdeeds in his youth by not being eligible to get his license.
At the court hearing, Attorney McAllister negotiated an agreement with the police officer who had issued the ticket. By bringing to light the above information, Attorney McAllister was able to convince the officer that this was not a young man who should be in jail. Although our client still had to pay a fine, he did not have to spend any time in jail, and he avoided any further suspension of his license. Attorney McAllister is not working with out client to get him eligible to receive a license as soon as possible.
