Case Conclusion Date:September 17, 2010
Practice Area:Criminal Defense
Outcome:Dismissed With Prejudice
Description:In September 2010 Scott Stewart represented T.M. on a charge of Driving With License Suspended in the First Degree in District Court. T.M. was facing 10 to 365 days in jail, and a loss of license until 2016. The arresting officer had stopped T.M. after running his license plate and learning that there was a warrant for someone resembling the driver of the vehicle that was attached to the license plate number. Scott brought a motion to dismiss arguing that the evidence was insufficient to provide a legitimate basis for stopping the vehicle. The judge agreed and the charge was dismissed, with prejudice. The above is not intended as legal advice or as a guarantee of the outcome of any future case. This is because every case has unique facts, and no one can ever guarantee results.
